Three days of monsoon thunderstorms have churned the ocean and left us playing cards, reading, and watching American history in the making. We have also had time to get to know the locals - surely the friendliest people on earth, or do they feel sorry for us, (because of the constant rain).
Where are the tourists?
We are almost alone at our beautiful resort - just a couple of dozen smiling Thai waitresses at our service - tables and staff for fifty, but no one came for dinner last night and only four for breakfast this morning!
Is it the gloomy weather? the gloomy economy? or, the gloomy political scene?
Who knows - but Mr. Smith and his family manage to smile whatever.
