Some respite…

Finally, after almost a week of gruelling heat (close to 33 degrees for 5 days continuously), there was some wind today. Every single person I have met so far did not fail to tell me how they absolutely loved the Sun and the weather. When I tell them that I haven’t and how I wish that it wasn’t so hot, they are surprised. Surprised that coming from a tropical place I find the heat unwelcoming. The summer heat here is different to the summer heat in India. I feel like I am much closer to the Sun here in this part of the world when compared to the Asian peninsula. I have never liked the summer heat anywhere. In India, I used to have fans in all the rooms and they used to be switched on non-stop. There aren’t any fans here. We got one for our flat, but there isn’t any in the school and it isn’t air conditioned. The staff room was like a furnace this week. Being on the top floor did not do us any favour. Wasn’t I glad to see some clouds and the wind along with some warmth today. I don’t mind the Sun, as long as it comes with some wind. People keep telling me that I should enjoy the Sun in this country when it is out and about since it is quite rare. But I have been here almost 6 months and I am kind of OK with the weather. Makes for a nice change with the slight chill in the air all the time when compared to the Bangalore weather. It does hurt my sinus sometimes but with the heat comes the hay fever and that doesn’t help me either. Someone said that the winter is better because you can add layers of clothes to feel warm. In the case of summer, you can only not wear so many clothes. You would end up still feeling all hot, humid and irritated. I totally agree. Hopefully, the rain that is predicted for the weekend will cool down the temperatures a bit.

    The sun definitely feels stronger than it does here. Stay indoors or go out – neither seems like a great choice. 😅 Hope it does rain.

    If it helps, I’m allergic to heat! Goooooooood times I tell you, good times! So I feel you – and hay fever, could just go off somewhere else – I would not mind 😉

      He he… It’s become bit cold now. I am OK with that. Hopefully a bit of cloud and breeze will prevail. 🙂

        Oooh. The only positive thing is that when I wear less clothes my reactions aren’t that big. Just try being at a party during winter and it gets so hot inside and no one want’s to open the window for the one poor bastard (being me) who is itching and scratching due to the humidity!!

        I wish I had airconditioning inside my house 😛

              Ha ha 😂 I always prefer a breezy weather. And my fashion sense is the same for all weathers. I have got it always covered (pun intended ;))

    I don’t know about these people who love this sun, but the Bangalore I know and love is wayyyy cooler than 2017 Summer’s heat. Phew!

      For sure. It has consistently gone from bad to worse over the years, sadly

        Remember those days when Summers felt like mild Winters and Sun seemed to exist only to tell us it was morning? Sigh.
