Lame Update- Long Time Between Posts

The boring update….about a month between posts, I’ve been working back and forth between Singapore and Bangkok and simply got behind in my updates.

The oddest thing happening right now in Bangkok is not the election or the fact Parliament has been dissolved, but the weather. This is supposed to be the hottest time of the year with temperatures approaching 40, high humidity and blazing sun, yet we have had rain almost daily and temperatures in the low to mid 30’s. The weather is always a boring topic (like Singapore), but when facing a brutal heat that doesn’t materialize it becomes a fun topic.

More about the election later, but things are good (sabai sabai) in Bangkok now- moderately hot temps with moderate illogic in the political system….sounds like most countries.

I had lived in San Francisco for 15 years and was working on a project in Thailand. Generally I spent 2 weeks in Bangkok and then 3-4 weeks in San Francisco. Did Bangkok begin to feel like home? Yes, and No. Bangkok and the Thai culture forced me to feel many things, the change in culture and environment was so dramatic it forced the decision- embrace or ignore. I embraced and made Bangkok my home and base in 2009. I have enjoyed living in Bangkok, experiencing Thailand and the entire ASEAN region.
