Cold, Wet and Buggy

Ok, so the cold part is a blatant lie, or at least it's a relative term.

The rainy season is officially upon Chiang Mai. Well, I guess I don't actually know what "officially" constitutes the rainy season, so that could easily be a lie as well, or at least incorrect. Suffice it to say that it has started raining with some regularity. And when it rains, it pours, if you'll pardon the triteness. Of if you wont. That's fine too.

An interesting side effect of the rain is that most nights it's accompanied by wicked hatches of bugs, of many varieties, but mostly these little termitey things.
Yes, that's a word. They fly all around anything that puts out light, they're pretty annoying, and sometime in the night, they all fall to the ground and lose their wings, or perhaps lose their wings and then fall to the ground. Whatever the case, in the morning there are millions of termite wings all over the place. Good times!

(is it just me, or is there a gecko in here?)
