What a stupid title for this post, hopefully I think up something better, change the title and delete this sentence.
I was out having some beers with friends, the rainy season has arrived in full force with strong rain each afternoon and evening. I love it. Tonight a friend commented “we’re in for a few more days of rough weather, a big storm in coming in from Vietnam and Cambodia.”
4 years ago, big storms moving through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand were a sound bite I overheard on the news or something I glanced when reading the international section of a newspaper. Now, what blows in from Cambodia, be it storms or other, impact my life; storms moving down the Oregon coast into Northern California are just a headline I skim.
In understanding the winds and storm patterns of the rainy season, I understand that I now ‘live’ in Bangkok.
