Over and Under the Weather

Perhaps it’s because I am a Brit, that’s why I seem to write a lot about the weather here in the Philippines. We British have a reputation of constantly talking about the weather. The subject crops up once more but in the form of being “under the weather.” I have succumbed to a local virus that seems to have affected so many people of all ages. It took the form of a rotten head cold then a chesty cough accompanied by the sweats and aching limbs.

Heat Lightning in the Philippines

I had never heard of heat lightning before yesterday. Indeed, I had never witnessed the phenomenon before. It’s a beautiful sight.  I Googled it but most of the camera shots don’t really portray what I saw. This is similar to what I saw.
