Rain, rain, go away....

Recommended Posts

LOTTELLEE WINNA

So I am just finishing off my leisurely breakfast in the fabulous hotel Acqua, when I see from the window a flash of lightning and hear an enormous rumble of thunder. The heavens open open up and within minutes soi Honey begins to flood. An hour later, the sun is shining but tourists and locals alike are wading through the filthy water filled sois.

I love holidaying here, but I still scratch my head in amazement that issues as straightforward as drainage, resulting from only one hour’s rainfall can be so challenging. 

Will hit the hotel gym and hope the water recedes before tonight’s episode of Pattaya fun-filled frolics :Clap8:

I’ve told my Pattaya rain stories many times back home. It rains roughly 300 days a year where I live. Ok, maybe a slight exaggeration. Rain storms in Thailand are something else. 45 minutes to an hour then bright and sunny the next minute.

Fun to watch. Maybe it will eliminate some of the dust and pollen. Yes , the drains in pattaya don't seem to be able to keep up when it rains.

it was a bad one as i lost sight of the waterfront tower in daytime.

south pattaya is flooded much worse than usual and even wat chaimongkron is under water. i've only seen that happen once before in 10 years.

the rest of pattaya will be ugly for the next 2/3 hrs

It is all a bit pathetic really. 
Problem is nobody sees a direct profit from investing in basic infrastructure except the contractor and the government. Once the budget has gone, like on the beach, there is nothing left in the pot.

Just been on a long walk, from soi Honey up to Terminal 21 and back (via soi AR and Buhakow)....glad to say it’s all good now - dry as a bone. Just in time for me to get showered and changed into my ‘dancing shoes’ for tonight’s frivolities around town...wooohooo :Clap8:

Had a fair bit of rain this afternoon. Looking down Soi 13 towards Buakhao.

Looking back up Soi 13. I can think of better places to enjoy a drink.

The Easy R-Con open sewer. Talk about what lurks beneath murky waters. Walk past the green netting and you better be able to swim.

Apparently there is a plan for fixing the open sewer.

Yes mate, it’s a good walk for sure. Naklua is even further. I just love walking around town...good exercise and always lots to see.

Noticed today on soi AR that part of Jamesons Irish Bar has been turned into a pizza restaurant- when did that happen...anyone know?

They had started it early February,  unfortunately Jameson's has gone downhill and so has the food.

A few years ago, that was my ‘go to’ bar for a beer and a feed. Shame if it’s not how it was.
