Is there life without aircon? Hot weather in Phuket.



We are now into the hottest time of year in Phuket. Weather now is HOT, real HOT. The time of year when people are praying for rain. Well, the "rainy season" is not far away now. I can feel it in my bones. And we should be thankful we are in Phuket, where according to phuket-info.com yesterday's temperature was a mere 34 degrees. We just saw on the news that in Tak province, south of Chiang Mai, the temperature was over 43 degrees.

Today was quite bearable, mostly coz I have aircon in the dive shop. Things cool off a few degrees at night, but there is next to no wind, so it still feels darn hot. Nice to have aircon in the bedroom too. Yesterday was more difficult, as a truck hit an electric pole in Karon and we had no power all afternoon.

Here's a picture taken at Boat Lagoon on Saturday. Blue skies, too warm to walk around for long. Boat lagoon is like the twilight zone of Phuket...am I still in Thailand or perhaps in the South of France?

Time for a tasty MANGO MANGO MANGO!
