This is just a letter of admiration to all the people who
are still here in Thailand and ‘work’. I never thought about writing to
a ‘Mailbag’ but this heat is incredible and there is no other place than
sitting in an air-conditioned room. TV gets boring after a while, the
available newspapers don’t take more than 2 hours of your day away and the
last spot left is the Internet.
How can anybody actually get some work done in this heat?
I arrived in Thailand last year after retirement, after many years of
visiting only for short periods of time. But the way it is now, regarding
the temperature, I have to rethink and hopefully did not make a mistake that
I bought a condominium for my wife and me.
I never felt the heat as bad as I do right now. Does
anyone have a prediction how long this heat will last?
So, let me tell everybody out there: I feel sorry for you
that you have to walk, drive or even think in this heat.
And please Chiangmai Mail: go on providing news about
this area and maybe think of doing a weather forecast as well, so that we
know when we can finally breathe again.
