Back to gas mark 5 in Phuket!
Those heavy rains on Tuesday are a dim memory. The last 2 days have been full-on heat once more. Can't we maybe get something in between. A nice "partly sunny" day, not too hot... please? I am not one to moan about the heat.. I surely do prefer roasting to freezing, and I did choose to live here. Back in 1999, living in Honduras without 24 electricity at my house, the heat sometimes got too much. I'd be waking up at 3am for a cold shower, open the window and hope for a puff of breeze. But back in England later that year before coming to Thailand I found it too cold for my liking. And those long winter nights are something I don't miss either.
Managed a quick walk on Karon Beach yesterday lunchtime. A quick walk because it was too hot for a long walk! A good day to be a tourist for sure, get a tan, dip in the pool, a cold beer, a nice Thai lunch. I have a day off tomorrow and that will be just about the plan!
And now.. the photoshoppped version...
Today is the first day since Tuesday that I have been feeling 100% (well maybe 80%) well. Had a headache and sinus pains and lack of appetite for a few days. Hell, not even had a single beer for 4 days. That can't be right! Picked up my work permit today and paid the 3,000 Baht renewal fee (1 year). The Labour Dept. is near Sapan Hin, and I had time for a walk around the shoreline before the 8:30am opening time of the work permit office. There are lots of mangroves in the area and it seems mangrove saplings have recently been planted. It was a beautiful morning. Not too hot at 8:30am, and there are always people out walking at Sapan Hin.
