You know you have acclimatized to the weather in Thailand when……………. it’s bloody freezing when you wake up.
This morning I woke up at 8am shivering so much I had to get up and put a long-sleeved shirt on. That’s because I sleep on top of the bottom sheet with no blanket or sheets as coverings – the Thai way. During the night, I also don’t use air conditioning as I’ve found over the years I don’t need it, although I use it often throughout the day.
This morning, though, I was shivering when I woke up, which is usually a good indicator that the temperature outside is lower than normal. So, I got online and checked the temperature in Bangkok.
Yes, you could say I have acclimatized to the weather in Thailand as, back in the US, 79 degrees would have been a ‘warm day’. In Bangkok, it’s cause for me to get out the long underwear and make sure I have a blanket on hand when I go to bed tonight.
God help me. I’ve become Thai 🙂
