How you feelin' (Hot Hot Hot)

I can think of few other things to blog about today, other than the heat. It's crazy hot here!

I don't know how hot exactly, but hot!

Hot enough, that had it been socially exceptable, I would have much rather walked around in my birthday suit this afternoon instead of a business suit. Hot enough, that I have been sitting in front of my fan for two hours and have been perfectly content entertaining myself by saying "Luke, I am your faaaather" into the spinning blades. Both of which point to the fact that the heat may have made me delirious!

Might be time to find the local Wilmersdorf swimming pool tomorrow!

Do you not have AC???

I definitely don't have air, and very very few businesses have it either. I have found AC at 3 places: the food floor of KaDeWe, The German Historical Museum and the Info Center of the British Embassy. Usually they don't need it, but they do at the moment!
Cheers!

Are the movie theatres air conditioned? Other than jumping in the lake, going to a movie was just about the only way to cool off in Geneva.

Hope things cool off soon!!

oh dear! Well, I hope that it at least cools down at night so you can get a good night's sleep. You probably already know this, but in India we keep our curtains closed so that the breeze comes in but the sunlight does not . . . so that keeps things cool. I am sure you are being good about drinking lots of cold water to keep your insides cold.

Sending cooling thoughts you way . . .

God Bless the Good Old Air Conditioned US of A!

Amen to air!

The curtain thing is funny... it just dawned on me about a 2 weeks ago that I could open my bedroom window all the way and have the curtains drawn. I like the window wide open at night though, so the trick is to shut the curtains in the morning before the sun blares in your face! Some days I am more successful with that than others:-)

the ubiquity of air conditioning in the US is one reason that the per capita energy usage is almost double that of europe. this contributes to depletion of our natural resources (used to produce the electricity) as well as increasing the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere (thereby accelerating global warming) - of course as long as we are killing and dying for oil we might as well use it!

2 things would make Berlin without AC more bearable... more people using deoderant and subway trains with open windows on both sides of the cars so it would be possible to create a breeze (draft:-0)
