Monday Montage: More Heat

It’s getting hot here in Phuket. Up until a couple of weeks ago, the temperature here averaged around 32 degrees Celsius (90 degrees Fahrenheit) with a nice mellow humidity level. I think that is the best kind of weather, and I refused to use the A/C in our house until bedtime. That was until this week. All of a sudden the heat us upon us and it is roasting outside. Last night at 10:00 the temperature was 38 Celsius (100 Fahrenheit). It was much hotter during the day, but I don’t know the exact temperatures, as I couldn’t hold my phone to check, it kept slipping out of my sweaty hand. ┬áNo, not really, but it could have been for that reason.

All three of us love and enjoy hot, sunny weather. But we are also thankful for fans and our air conditioning. How’s the weather been where you are?

Here are the pictures for this week. Thanks for reading! And if you haven’t already, please like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.

The swimming pool that is a couple of blocks from our house. It costs 70 baht ($1.75) per adult and 50 baht ($1.50) per child. We love it.

This is a very popoluar cleaning supply company here in Thailand. I do not think they know how wrong this is. :-/

A gas station squat toilet. It looks dirty but was actually fairly clean. Just old. This look is pretty common for public toilets though.

A public bus here on Phuket Island. They run from town to town without any kind of schedule. If you are able to find one and flag it down, it only costs 20 baht per person.
