19th July, 2008

Today's weather;

A thin layer of overcast is still in the sky but I expect this to be burnt away by the sun one this starts to heat up. Current temp at 7 am is 26.7C.

Yesterday was another hot and sunny day with a max temp of 33.3C. During the late afternoon and early evening we had two showers though, one with thunder and lightning, it cooled things down a bit which I welcomed!

We went around the island yesterday, with visiting friends. At the waterfall at Baan Namuang I saw a typical Thai event happen in front of me, almost not recognising how unusual this may be for a Westerner.

The Thai ice cream vendor! Motorised by his motorbike with side car and besieged by all Thai kids and their parents.

As you can see, they are popular and the ice actually tastes good. Strangely enough, Thais find it absolutely normal to stick ice between a bun together with some sticky rice!
