The last time it was this hot I was in Kuwait City, which had the advantage of air conditioning. EDIT – no it wasn’t, it was Seville, Spain, which had no air con and the locals had deserted the town.
It’s not just the sun that’s hot but the ground, the wind, everything. Life in an oven. Thank goodness it’s not humid as well.
There are other excursions planned but in this heat schlepping around any town is no fun.
This evening we go in search of yet another world famous, 40 years in business ice-cream emporium about 15 minutes away in the direction of nowheresville. With luck we will stumble upon a small restaurant serving the best truffle risotto known to man as well.
