Taman Tun

Last night we foolishly went out to an event in Korat.  It poured with rain the whole time and the event was sparsely attended because people could not travel due to the floods.  The journey back home took an hour and a half instead of 15 minutes because everyone had turned off the main roads onto the side roads to avoid the floods.  This morning as I am writing this, the downpour continues. 

In 2005 I moved from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok to start work on a new project.  My first impressions of Bangkok were not good. Day after day of leaving work in the dark and going back to the hotel in the pouring rain.

The connection between last night and 2005 is La Niña which alternates with the better known El Niño.  During La Niña, the Pacific Ocean cools and this results in drought in California and lots of rain in Thailand.  Fortunately, La Niña should have run its course by next spring.

Come back El Niño, all is forgiven.

If the old only could, if the young only knew.

Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
