As anybody who is in Thailand right now and reading this will know, the country has been going through a very hot and dry spell lately. This always the hottest part of the year but has been several degrees hotter than normal, for longer than normal, in many parts of the country as we wait for the rainy season to get here. I was used to hearing the word “drought” in Australia, but it was not something I was expecting to hear and read so often here ! It was only a few years ago that the dams were overflowing and much of Bangkok was flooded.
So I have been coping by acting like a vampire lately ….staying inside out of the sun and in front of the air-con or fan during the day, and only venturing out after sunset to enjoy the relative cool of the night.
As a retiree with no necessity to go out usually I have managed to stay reasonably comfortable, but it’s not exactly exciting….which is my excuse for not posting anything lately
That, and a change in personal circumstances lately in the form of a new relationship which progressed rather quickly to the point where she moved in So I naturally had to devote a lot of time to her, putting this blog aside especially with nothing to write about.
But hopefully the weather will change soon, I get my mojo back and have something to write about…….
It certainly is hot here.. I thought the rainy season has started the other day with that downpour. Hope the rain starts soon 🙂
