It’s beginning to feel a lot like Britain...
It’s been raining incessantly since the afternoon of New Year’s Eve. Shit like this happens in the Tropics of course but even the locals are a little perplexed with the amount of moe-jar that’s occurring. It’s a lot cooler too though still around the early 20s.
Fortunately, I managed to catch a stunning sunset on the first night here at the Sakura Inn (or, rather, the posh neighbouring Thiripyitsaya Resort) and a full day exploring the main temples the following day.
PACE IS THE TRICK
Actually, if I’m honest, it’s been good to get a bit of a rest, chill out and plan for the days, weeks and months ahead. Everything’s been so hectic even before I finished work that some downtime was required to stop any early burn-out (I know, your heart bleeds for me). And it takes a while to settle sometimes - it’s different from a two week trip when less effort is required. One needs to pace oneself.
