43 degrees C, indoors.

Everything outside is roasting to touch. All aircons are merely blowing warm air over people. The fridge is somewhere useful to store warm water so it doens't litter around the tents. And everyday it gets a little hotter...

This week at night, we have had lows of 26 degrees.

Can't sleep... there is only sunbathing in the sweltering heat, working inside sweltering tents, or laying restlessly and sweating on a bed. Sitting down results in wet clothes wherever your body touches the seat.

Forget ye the fiery hell of level 2, for this is level 3!

*considers the options*

I'd have to try balancing it on my head for a minute, or, put it in my pants (!!). I couldn't put it down my back because it would just fall out the bottom of my untucked shirt!

Yeah well just don't offer to put is in touch, because half-way inbetween our respective countries is a place to which I'd rather not see us go!

Sitting my fat ass here in Edinburgh I simply can't comprehend such temperatures. It's yet to reach 20 C here and I consider it nice at the moment. If somehow it managed to reach the heady heights of the mid-20's i'd probably be complaining. Given that I managed to get some sort of exhaustion/dehydration while cycling in similar conditions last week then 43 degrees would, more than likely, cause me to keel over (without many weeks/months of acclimatising).

Well done that chap!

When I got here it wasn't that hot (only 30), so I got to acclimitize as it got hotter. It was absolutely freezing at night... last night it was a MINIMUM of 26 degrees. Too hot to sleep!

Edinburgh... tell me, does it rain?

Well on the long-term scale yes it rains but currently we're having a bit of a dry period. I've noticed the precipitation trend over the past couple of years changing; Previously the rain would set in for a good period of time, at least a day if not more, now we tend to have 'continental' style 10-30minute downpours before the sun comes back out again.

Edinburgh in the rain is a great city. With all the windy passages ('closes' are they are called) and the almost multi-level feel of the old town with it's wash-out greys on a rainy day. Of course during the festival in August sitting out in a beer garden with the sun still up at 10pm is great as well!

Hope you have a speedy 'tour' and get back to blightly for some more clement weather :)

Guess I shouldn't complain about our temps being in the 90s (F). It's a little early for the real heat, but here it is. My tomatoes like it.

Wow, it's 100 degrees(F) here I bet it's way hotter there. Hope you can get as much respite from the heat. Your comment about this is level 3 is humerous.

Hope all is well.

Peace in the Middle East!

you are brave for putting up with those conditions!
