There are times when the best option is to run for it to find somewhere more sheltered. When there’s a downpour in Segovia’s Plaza Mayor, my advice would be to head for the colonnades. Whenever you decide you need to escape from a given situation, be absolutely sure that the place you choose to escape to is better, and you’re not going to end up absolutely soaked to the skin. Escapes should be made in a straight line and with a large dose of determination.
