We actually made it up to 39 yesterday! In a country with no air con it is not fun. We should be a bit cooler for a few days but then we have 40 forecast for the end of next week . I'm praying to the weather gods not to make that happen.

These temperatures are a bit unusual here, it is the hottest it has been in my 16 years in the country and we are getting very close to the highest ever recorded temperatures.
