November marks the beginning of my favorite few months of the year in Thailand. The temperature drops significantly overnight and stays pleasantly cool throughout much of the morning. It's also just a more festive time of the year. The one (major) downside is that the air pollution always skyrockets, with PM2.5 levels jumping to noticeably unhealthy levels. We have air purifiers in the house running 24/7. But in the end, there's no escaping the feeling that the air is taking a big sandy dump in my lungs. It does sometimes make for a pretty mist, though.
