The papers are filled with news of trouble and anticipation of trouble in the southern borders and in BKK respectively. I know most of you do not live in either place but is it as bad as reported? Weather over here is utterly unpredictable . They heavy downpour is causing urban flooding. heavy property damage and financial losses to businesses. The last I spoke to a friend, he said the weather is hotter than ever in Thailand and in Laos. Hope all is well with you wherever you may be residing.
