Yesterday, after work I drove for 20 minutes and got out of the car looking like I peed in my pants. I only work half day on Saturdays so I’m out of the office at 1:30 pm – most probably the hottest hour of the day. The back of my shirt is wet and I don’t know, back sweat has trickled all the way down yeah, you get the picture (sorry if you don’t want to get the picture)…I look like a toddler who missed to arrive at the toilet by 2 seconds.
I was talking to my friend in Japan and she was ecstatic to give me some weather news: Japan’s spring season is almost over and it’s heating up there at 20C.
Right. It’s heating up here too at 35C and it’s just the beginning of May.
The mornings are still ok, unless you go out at 8:30 without an umbrella. Once I went out to buy something and thought my scalp would curl and crisp like a breakfast bacon. It’s that hot. This is the time of the year where we expats of the UAE, who dread the summer heat but love to stay here for so many other reasons, run from one airconditioned building to another.
