This is NOT the post I had planned for today, Sunday the 16th of October 2022. In Phuket Town, Sunday evenings are reserved for the popular Walking Street known locally as Lard Yai. I highly doubt that tonight's event will go ahead, however. It has been raining here for weeks. It is the Monsoon Season, … Continue reading The Great Phuket Town Flood of 2022
Daily Phuket #105: 26 December 2021 – Caught by the Rain
I ventured out to the Sunday evening Walking Street (local name: Lard Yai) on Thanon Thalang for the first time in months tonight. In fact, I first circled the Old Town area snapping photos of the always lovely Kasikorn Bank building and historic On-On Hotel on Thanon Phang Nga and a few festive buildings along … Continue reading Daily Phuket #105: 26 December 2021 – Caught by the Rain

Thus, this truly is my "neighborhood." That neighborhood extends quite a … Continue reading My Neighborhood: A Phuket Town Photo Gallery
Walking Around, Moving In & Teaching While Sweating
I've certainly gotten a lot of exercise over the past few days. It's been extremely hot so I've been sweating no matter what I've been doing (even laying around doing nothing). But mostly I've been doing things. I don't have any lessons at my school on Wednesdays so I taught two private lessons yesterday -- … Continue reading Walking Around, Moving In & Teaching While Sweating
