#193 summer in the city

193/365 untypically tropical, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

An exceptionally long heat wave continues for the second week. News headlines scream about record temperatures, people suffering from heat-related ailments, and speculations about global warming. The old Joe Cocker lyrics play in my head:
“Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the city, All around people looking half dead, Walking on the sidewalk hotter than a match head.”
For the first time ever, the thought of installing an electric air-conditioning unit entered my head last night, as I kept tossing and turning, unable to sleep because of the heat.

Then again, I am not complaining! It will be so cold again, so let’s just bask in the almost tropically hot sunshine, and go for a swim whenever it gets too unbearable.
