Beat the Heat

Spain can be hot. In the heart of Andalucia, in Seville and Granada, we regularly found that the maximum temperature during the day would pass 40 Celcius. This is hotter than Mumbai. The dry heat approaches the weather of Delhi.

However, Spain has found wonderful little ways of cooling off. We especially liked the covered street that you can see in the featured photo. The temporary screens shade the street from the hot sun, and allow people to walk about the street without getting hot under the collar.

"Why can’t we do this in India?" asked The Family when she saw this wonderful temporary structure. I couldn’t agree more. Notice the flowers on the lamp posts? Not only do they look good, they also hold water which drips down to cool the streets.

I travel on work. When that gets too tiring then I relax by travelling for holidays. The holidays are pretty hectic, so I need to unwind by getting back home. But that means work.
