This was our 7th stay at the Rayavadee. Never had we had so much rain. The first two days were a washout. All weather patterns are changing. This is the wettest start to the raining season on record. No Beach time. We did a lot of walks through the 120 acres under our umbrellas but still in shorts and flip flops. The vegetation is really beautiful when wet. One day we did a Thai cooking class. Made shrimp cakes (usually crab cakes but out of season). Phad Thai and chicken curry. Had a lot of fun and ate what we prepared. Just two couples and the instructor.
