Message from the Founder
Greetings as we finish up the final month of the rainy season and begin the cool and dry season to come. In Thai, October is referred to as ปลายฝนต้นหนาว (blai fon dton naow, last rain, first cold), the last of the rainy season months and the first of the cold season months.
