There's no such thing as bad weather, you're just badly dressed for the weather.

I was in Germany when I first heard this remark. I was attending a late summer early autumn course on land use planning in Dresden. Coming from a tropical country, I was only bringing a few knitted clothes, not so thick. I did not foresee the fieldwork that we will be doing where the wind's chill factor added to the cold. The occasional rains made things worse. Like the rest, I would have been less affected by the cold if I have thicker clothes.

I should be better prepared for this trip. It's late autumn and winter is just around the corner. Below is the weather forecast for Kobe.

20 November 11C to 18C
21 November 9C to 16C
22 November 9C to 15C
23 November 9C to 15C
24 November
25 November

I have invested on a bubble jacket, not so thick but it's enough to give you warmth in a 0 celsius environment. (Well the lady at Bossini said so.) My short stint at ADB also forced me to buy a few "winter clothes". It's really cold inside the premises especially since I was there during the rainy months. (And I also have to decide what I can bring for this Japan trip and what to bring for the Korea trip because they are just a few hours apart. I will be arriving 1:25 pm Friday, out of the airport by 3 pm, home by 5 pm. Must leave for the airport at 9 pm for the 1 am flight to Incheon. See blog on Seoul Solitude.)
