Ok so it has been really hot here in Lumbarda, Korcula, Croatia, 35 to 40 degrees. I arrived July 26th and it has been sunny and hot ever since, which after 3 months of rain in England, I should really be happy about but here is the thing….
My apartment does not have air-conditioning… nor does my car…. and well I am not going to an office so no AC there either.
It has never occurred to me that with all the air conditioning in my life, that my body has always had the opportunity to cool down. Now with no AC, I find this heat exhausting!
My sister is laughing at me as usually she is the one that is the “puddle”, but her house in Kingston, Canada has no AC, nor does her car, and although her office has AC, she is in some sort of pocket and her area is warm, so she is not finding this heat troubling at all.
So what does one do? I’ll be honest, I have not found a solution yet but here are some thoughts:
1. Stay out of the sun from 10-4pm.
2. Swim in the morning and in the late afternoon…luckily the sea is cool.
3. Drink lots of fluids… they say to drink warm fluids in heat but I am not convinced.
4. Buy a fan
Well that is about it…. does anyone else have any ideas??? I would truly love to hear them
Until later, I will sign off… Hot and bothered (and not in a good way!) from Croatia.
