Five Essentials to Hot Season
April is Thailand’s hottest month on average. No where in my village has air conditioning, even my school. This. Is. Torture. In case you’re ever making your way to Thailand in the hot season, here are a few ways I try to make it through.
Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, no matter where I am in my house.
Shower Flower Power
Yeah, I’m up to three showers a day now. It’s my favorite part(s) of the day.
After a shower, the godsend known as Prickly Heat cooling powder is applied until your skin it is about three shades lighter than usual. Then enjoy the sensation of not wanting to suffocate from the combined heat and humidity for ten minutes. This is best accomplished when sitting in front of the fan.
Thailand is a country that if you’re not drinking enough water, your body is going to poop out on you and fast.
Need to Move Basis Only
Last April I was still gung-ho about biking around and exploring my village, IRBing as much as possible. What a fool I was. Now, moving from my bedroom to the kitchen for lunch seems like too much of an effort until my stomach turns on me and starts eating itself. It’s easy to see why hammocks are so popular in this country.
