70 Degrees C Baby - #11


If you can't stand the heat... I have made reference several times to how hot Dubai can be.

This is a shot taken of my dashboard thermometer. This has not been altered or doctored in anyway at all. Of course this is not the ambient air temperature, but a surface temp in the car...

Really, truly, Dubai can feel very much like being in an oven. June through to mid Sept are extremely hot. 50 degress C has been recorded, even though it is not always reported in the press as at this temperature all workers must stop outdoor work by law. And of course that wouldn't be very good now, would it...

So should we presume that everywhere is air conditioned and everyone has a swimming pool? Wow - that's hot!

It is stunningly (and I do mean stunningly) hot for approx 4 months per year. The vast majority of places do have air con, they have to... yet for 8 months a year the climate is really pleasant and enjoyable...
