Goodbye to August 2016
The last of this month has come and it's time to say 'Goodbye to August 2016'.
The weather this month was not that great, especially not the first twenty days, during which Koh Samui endured lots of rain and some very heavy wind, at a few times even storm like conditions and with lots of rain as well.
The last third of the month we saw the sun making a few appearances and the weather turned a lot nicer, although we still had plenty of tropical showers, however, mostly during the late afternoon, early evening or during the night.
A similar August month as last year in 2015. The year 2014 August was more like a typical August with plenty of sunshine and good weather. Maybe next month or next year again?
Goodbye to August 2016; The seven days of the week again, with Wednesday having two options, morning and evening, once more an occasion to make merit, this time in Wat Lamai
During this month I was at the beginning of the month on Phuket for a PADI IDC and last week I went to Ban Na San to run a 25km race.
This month typically sees overseas visitors come and visit the island and this year I was very enjoyable to reconnect with Farah, who I met some 18 years ago during my music touring days as a road manager, and he was with a Japanese band by the name of Cornelius. We had some good food at Dcheed 2 for some outstanding pork sateh and 'raad na', Kobori for Japanese food, what else!? and Sabeinglae at The Wharf in Fisherman's Village for some of the best Thai food on the island.
Next month is coming on strong, just like Brenda Lee, and I'm still in preparation for the Khanom marathon, come 25th September, during which I hope to break a time under 4 hours. After that it's off to Phuket again for another PADI IDC on Phuket.
See you all next month, in September, hope to see drop by here!
