Summer is almost here, in the northern hemisphere anyway. It’s already quite hot, 30 degrees most days now. There are still a lot of flowers around, and I wonder how long they will survive in the coming heat. Scientists say that summer 2009 will be an average 1,5 degrees hotter, whatever this means.
Heat explains some of the habits here. Many shops and offices are closed from 2 to 5 in the afternoon: siesta time. And dinner does not usually start before 9 PM, when the heat abates a little.
Today is my birthday, after me: the summer! Happy summer, everybody!
21/06/09: thanks for all your birthday wishes! Appreciate it!
