Walking home was exhausting. At 9:30am it was 32 centigrade with a hot breeze that felt like being blasted in a furnace. Everyone is losing weight simply on account of the fact it’s too hot to chew or be bothered to swallow. People are sleeping a lot during the day. The night time temperature barely drops below 30 degrees and as a result people toss and turn during the night. In the day they are then so tired they fall over where they sit into a gentle sleeping pattern.
We are due to teach at 6 am on Saturday. Hopefully this will afford us a little more cool in which to concentrate.
