Meals with Midgi: Rainy days and Mondays never get me down

Wed, 09/02/2015 - 5:23am
It's raining and it's Monday. The first thing that comes to mind is that old song, "Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down." I happen to love the rainy days, which is a good thing when living in a rainforest. During the summer, Mondays don't seem to be a day of gloom and doom, beginning the countdown to Friday. Every day is a work day for those of us in the visitor industry. In fact, it is not uncommon to find me at my desk at HQ or guiding a tour on Sundays. This is the nature of the industry and the price we pay to enjoy the work we love. And I do love what I do. Meeting visitors who are excited to be in my town and getting to feed them is one of the most fun things I've ever done.
