Yes, it does piss down rain here on Koh Phangan occasionally. . .it is rainy season here from about October to about the end of January, and we LOVE IT! In this case it rained for two days straight. . .the air stays warm, the rain itself is warm, we walk around in it doing our day-to-day activities like foraging for breakfast…using the toilet…brushing our teeth…etc. and so on. . .plus, it makes our house feel extra atmospheric with the rain hitting the thatch roof, dripping into our bathroom, and creating the wonderful cozy vibe that encourages us to read all of the books that we have with us. . .mmmm, aaaahh! And then the rains clear out which is oh-so very good for our shakti–sim sala bim, om mani padmi hom, namaste, and all of that good stuff.
The rest of our days are somewhat overcast, breezy, and always around ninety degrees fahrenheit. . .the water in The Gulf of Thailand is always around eighty degrees or so. . .damn, I can stay here a long time with no worries at all. . .the air is clean-clean-clean–we have no city phlegm or mucus spewing out of us. . .it is back in New York City where it belongs. . .mmm, aaaahh!
I send you serenely cleansing vibes from Koh Phangan. . .feel them. . .they will help you ring in the new year real good.
