12th April, 2009

Today's weather;

Just one day before Songkran or the Thai New Year, it seems that the weather is turning around for the better. Although it's cloudy this morning, there's no rain predicted. Current temp at 7 am is 25.8C.

During next week the two yearly wind change will occur, meaning that the wind will be blowing in to the Nathon side or Western side of the island, giving Chaweng a nice flat ocean!

Yesterday saw a sunny and dry day, after some initial rain very early in the morning, slowly, bit by bit, the clouds evaporated and the sun broke through. Max temp reached 30.8C.

First results of Songkran; 36 dead in road accidents on first day of Songkran

Unfortunately it's time again to give an update on new anti government demonstrations, this time led by the 'red shirts' or pro Thaksin protesters. Big news yesterday was of course the cancellation of the Asean summit in Pattaya, leaders had to flee amid chaos in Pattaya.

The whole situation is a blot on Thailand's reputation and raises the question if Thailand must sink further?
