Honestly, when it rains it pours.
There are really only two seasons, HOT and RAINY.
The rainy season in Vietnam lasts from May to September.
The reason I dislike the rainy season is mainly due to the fact that a motorbike is my main mode of transportation. You've got about 30 seconds from the first fat drops that fall before you are engulfed in a blanket of rain. And boy are you vulnerable on a two wheeled vehicle!
It really makes you want to stay in all day and sleep, do nothing, eat heavy comforting foods and drink delicious alcoholic beverages. Too bad I can't : )
I really can't wait until it's over! Not to mention I am completely solar powered.... and I usually miss the sunny patches throughout the day while I'm at work!
First three day weekend I have at work (hopefully it falls after the rainy season) will be spent on the beach for sure!
