Go Green in the Lung

“Why is it called that?” was my first hungover question of last Sunday. The sun was shining and the heat was on. Thailand is quickly approaching the ‘hot hot’ season once again the chin sweats are becoming a real thing. Not a single item of clothing will stay safe in this heat and grey colour…

The Chao Phraya River

The start of the new year has not been Bangkok’s finest. We have been swarmed with heavy pollution, coating our city in a thick, grey smog with barely any sunlight to be found. The great outdoors has not been so great in this part of the world and we long for crispy, clean air. But…
