Main Street, Prasat car has not experienced running without aircon unit switched on.


Main Street is dominated by the ubiquitous "shop house" on the ground and mezzanine floors, and accommodation above.

I really like your treatment on this!
Your poor car... but thank goodness for AC, eh? I felt the same when I lived in the Phoenix area.
Ray: Car are sold here with air-con standard, but heater optional, Elizabeth...our car does not have a heater.
The same is true in Hotlanta during almost 8 months of the year, Ray, so I know! Here in Dutchland, I'm in heaven with temps hovering around 70F during the hottest months...with maybe 2 weeks out of the year hitting 80F. This is definitely where I was meant to live. smile
Ray: I garden from 0600 to 0930, take a break and try to stay cool, then garden again from 1700 to 1830 when it gets dark.

I am not getting as much done as I would like, Ginnie, but there is always tomorrow...

I have learnt a little trick which I am happy to pass on to you Ray. If your aircon is not working, try opening the car windows.It can be a bit noisy but you can get a reasonable circulation of air inside the automobile.
Ray: Thank you for this gem, Chad...I'll add it to "Old Ray's Almanac" so that it can be of benefit to the millions who will certainly need it...

The colours mirror the unbearable temperature to perfection Ray. I expect you think 38 is ok but I would expire under such a regime in no time
Ray: I was trying to display how draining this unrelenting climate can be to aliens, Chris.

I expect I shall eventually get used to it...or not!

I can tell that this is hot... the both sides of the picture are like a mirage.... (Fata Morgana).... Love the treatment though smile
Mostly I do the same as Chad concerning the AC..
Ray: I took this pic with a small toy camera in my tablet, Astrid, then played with it using a couple of the post processing freebies I have found useful in Android environment.
I use the aircon on my car more in the winter to deal with the windows steaming up from the damp air.
Ray: Yes...that works, Bill.

You really do't want to try to cross to the other side of the road if you have the lanes of traffic to cross. It would be easy in the UK because it would be stationary due to gridlock.

Take no notice of Chad; hot, humid air coming through the window is not the same, at all! My air con is always on, too.
Ray: You mean...blush...Chad's advice is not to be trusted!

[Next you will be suggesting he is not stumbling about the Earth trying to find a mythical place he terms "Greenland"...]
I like your treatment making us feel the heat Ray! The highest temperature I ever experienced was 48°C in Tunisia in June 1997...and I rented a car with an aircon wich could hardly cope...
Ray: I did 45 for about a week in Australia once, Richard...that was wearing.

In Thailand it is the combination of 40C plus 95% humidity that wears.
I am wondering why you don't just turn on the AC or am I missing something?
Ray: It seems my first paragraph is somewhat confusing to my buddies, Mary.

I was making the point that it is hot in Thailand, such that my car [which I have owned and driven for 10 years] always has the aircon engaged. purse from sow's kind buddies are full of useful suggestions.
i see all that paved up work and no greenery at all. i can almost imagine the heat radiating in all directions, Ray
Ray: It is Hellish Hot, Ayush.

The city is starting to become self conscious, but has a way to go before greenery becomes a priority.

This is the closest city to our has a fine 7X24 market that we use a lot.
Great shot, Ray!
Ray: Thank you, Tom.
This is a very wide street, there appears to be at least five lanes on the side you are on. I would find those temperatures very difficult to deal with.
Ray: Prasat city has an exceptionally wide main street, Brian.

The heat, from 1000 to 1600 is very hard to deal with, if you are trying to work outside in the garden.
The fellow on the motorcycle has the ultimate aircon...
Ray: ...when he is moving...
Have you tried walking Ray, it's all the rage in Droitwich.
Ray: I do a bit of that, Michael, so long as I have carefully checked the area and found the cold beer places are not more than 5 minutes apart.
Very cool picture
Ray: Cool pic of a HOT place, Hollie...thank you.
