…and after a year in the U.S., experiencing, once again, Thailand’s glorious tropical heat. (And it’s not even hot season.) The temps here remind me of this May 2012 Tweet and photo from Annelie (@a_nnelie): CNN explains why it's so hot in Thailand pic.twitter.com/5fjA9DzH — Annelie (@a_nnelie) May 2, 2012 Sometimes that’s truly how it […]
That is all.
This was the scene on the Columbia campus around mid-day yesterday: Yes — it was sunny. And with temperatures in the 60s, it felt almost hot after the last several months of winter.

We’ve been spared the daily downpours as the rainy season has come to a close, and […]
