Wow, Thailand is becoming a chilly, cool, cold, freezing country! On Monday morning we had 17 degrees celcius – this morning not even that. The Bangkok Post predicts that we will continue to have 13-16 degrees this week.
The first day, I – and most Bangkok residents – were caught by surprise in T-Shirts and skimpy clothes. This morning, we were all bundled up with jackets and scarves. Our boat captain wears gloves and socks – maybe by tonight, he will have added a scarf and a bonnet.
I believe that the cold is not only a quirk of the weather, global warming (or the lack thereof) or arctic oscillation. It is for me! Finally I get a chance to wear my newest Thailand Karate jacket – outdoors!
