The rain cools everything off which is just fine with us. We see Balinese riding by on motorcycles wearing ski jackets in the evenings, when the temperature is still over 80. They must feel freezing today.
We are just comfortable.
The AirAsia flight disappearance is a very sad event. Tourism is already down here; no doubt the accident will scare off some more business. The price of everything has increased dramatically because the price of gas has gone up. Yes, up! ....while the rest of the world is enjoying lower prices. The government has been subsidizing gas for decades and they finally decided to remove the price subsidy. It's affected everything.
Today I start reading our book club's selection for the month, "Butterflies in November". The story is set in Iceland which should prove doubly interesting when read in the tropics. Maybe I'll read about snow and ice and freezing cold in the pool after the rain stops.
I grew up in an area rife with Icelandic people. I love Icelandic names - always found them lovely on the ear. To refresh my memory about the naming system I checked out Wiki and learned that in Iceland there are to this day laws governing how one can name a person or what names can be adopted. The customary names in Iceland are patrilineal ie. John's daughter would be known as Johnsdottir; John's son would be known as Johnson. The author of our book is clearly Olaf's daughter.
