Monday Montage: Full of Surprises

It rained for about 20 minutes the other day here in Phuket, Thailand. It was a wonderful change of pace as the days are getting hotter and hotter here (so far the hottest was about 35 degrees Celsius or 95 degrees Fahrenheit). We have actually had to turn our A/C on occasionally as the fans just weren’t cutting it. March, April, and most of May are the hottest times of the year here in Phuket, and so far the heat is right on schedule. Except for that 20 minutes of blessed rain that broke the 4 month drought that has loomed over the area, and gave us about an hour of much cooler weather. Oh, yes, and it also shorted out the electricity in our town and others near it. Oh, Thailand. One really never knows what to expect from one day to the next, except that there will be one or two surprises in store.

Oh… and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all you lovely folks out there, have a pint and some corned beef cabbage for me! I can’t go out as I am not wearing green and I cannot stand to be pinched.

At the Jungceylon Mall in Patong Phuket they are having a kind of art show to bring awareness to the plight of Thai elephants. This was the sign for it and Z loved it.

These clocks have His Majesty the King of Thailand on them. I think they are pretty cool looking.

I could hardly contain myself when I found out that there is a Payless Shoe Source here in Phuket. For those of you that don't know, they sell shoes in the States at pretty low prices. I pretty much ran into the store to see if they have my humungous size shoe.

And look at that!!!!! Size 11 USA! My life is now complete here in Phuket and I will lack for nothing! Hallelujah!
