Foreigners Go Mad in Rainshower…

It rains a lot in my native England. I’m used to that.

But it also rains in foreign countries. A LOT.

I lived in China for a while. Yeah, that was a wet country. Malaysia, yeah, they also had rain. But maybe Thailand has even more rain…

Anyway, Thai people seem to have found some interesting ways of coping with torrential downpours.

Here’s a hat that’s also an umbrella:

This looks like the kind of thing some crazy Japanese inventor has thought of, but it actually looks quite practical.

For anyone caught outside without an umbrella, necessity is the mother of all invention:

Finally, this raises all kinds of health and safety issues:

But, hey, this is Thailand 🙂
