Overcast skies all day, a nice breeze, no air conditioning needed….I’ll take it. Apologies to those tourists who wanted to sit poolside and increase their chances for skin cancer- but a cool, overcast day is wonderful. We, meaning residents of Bangkok, know that within weeks it will be extremely hot and the sun will be high in the sky early each day, these cool days will be missed.
Just after 12:00pm, no sign of the sun, thank you!
I began working in Bangkok during 2008- a time that featured a great deal of political unrest in Thailand and particularly Bangkok.
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. I moved to Singapore in 2016...fallen behind on this blog since.
