The Rainy Season

In Southern Vietnam there are two seasons the dry season and the rainy season. Perhaps you remember this quote about the rainy season.

Well we've officially entered the rainy season.  However, it's really not all that bad.  The thing about the rainy season is that while it does rain every day it doesn't rain all day everyday.  The people here actually like the rainy season because it cools things down.

During the dry season the temperatures average about 90 degrees but with the humidity the heat index can be around 105 degrees.  This lasts for several months day after day.  To protect ourselves we had to stay inside with the AC on during the really hot part of the day.  In order to sleep we had to leave the AC on all night.  Now we can open the windows and allow the cool air in from time to time.  Sometime in October we suspect it will just stop raining.
