Oh Baby It's Cold Outside

As we approach Christmas and the New Year in Huay Pakoot the temperature is plumeting. Just this last Wednesday it was a chilly 10°C (or 50°C for those Americans). Regular night temperatures these days are 15°C or cooler, which is very cold considering bamboo housing offers NO insulation. The daytime temperatures are still hot, but the temperature drops as soon as the sun does. Any volunteers joining the project soon should bring lots of long, cold weather layers. Most volunteers these days are even wearing winter hats and scarfs in the mornings and evenings. Welcome to winter!
