A day in the tropics

You'd think it was spring rather than mid-Summer - one day it's cool enough to need a jacket, the next day it's warm enough to briefly consider going to work in shorts and a singlet.

It was apparently 29 degrees Celsius today, which is extreme in itself ('round these parts, if it's more than 25 degrees it's a heatwave). But it was super-muggy all day and then we got torrential rain.

It's just like being in Bangkok, except that you aren't on holiday, there aren't any tuk-tuks and the locals aren't smiling as much.

Hi
Is there a way to contact you off-blog?
I've just started my own blog on the books of Enid Blyton - http://blytonlyobvious.wordpress.com/

Well that depends. Are you a real person? Are you try to selling me something?
