i am mellltttiing, i am melting!!! i'm hoping i don't look as bad as her, but i'm sure i look pretty close!
it is hot here in germany...africa hot, only we aren't on safari and there are no cool animals to look at, only naked germans, so it is not africa fun!
it hit 95 degrees today and is scheduled to hit 100 degrees tomorrow.
"what, that's not hot!" my american friends may be saying, especially those that experienced upwards of 110 degrees this summer, but here in europe it is hot! it is really hot when you have no air conditioners in your home or in any department store or grocery store in sight! as the matter of fact many of my girlfriends discussed bringing our lawn chairs and margaritas and meeting in the freezer section of the local grocery today, but we figured that probably wouldn't go over very well!
i know, i know, i complained last year when it rained too much, and now i'm complaining about the heat, but doesn't there have to be a happy medium?
pools are open late, ice stores have lines a mile long and i have heard a rumor that there is actually ice being served in water!
i was talking to a new expat today, she said she took her dog for a walk on the rhine this morning, she proceeded to tell me that she saw a full naked man laying by the beach reading his book! i told her that in germany nudity was not frowned upon... come to think about it maybe they have the right idea and in this weather, we are the crazy ones? okay, i'm not saying that i'm stripping down just yet, but don't look in my backyard tomorrow!!
