Reflections on the Grind

thoughts on training and life of an introvert

Pattaya refuge

with 2 comments

My second evacuation was in Pattaya. My family home was flooded so we drove a couple hours to the beachside city. My sister and her husband was visiting from England. It was good to spend time together. The ease of access to Pattaya means that a lot of people made the same choice. So the city was very crowded, the traffic was awful, and food and drinking water ran out in stores.

Still we were lucky to have a nice place to stay (family’s friend place). I had a treadmill to run on. A brief few days to reflect and make plans during this chaotic time. When you are with family and friends, it is never too bad.

bad water. ankle deep flood in front of the house. it was much deeper when we returned a few days later.
