Sauna

Monday, May 17, 2010

With temperatures reaching as high as 37 degrees Celsius (99 degrees Fahrenheit), no air-conditioning and the fan busted for eternity, my apartment feels like a sauna. The stultifying heat is almost unbearable: sweat flows from my body soaking my clothes, and itchy red rashes appear on my skin; the cushion feels damp and uncomfortable underneath me; I have to gulp down liters of water by the hour and type with one hand while fanning myself with the other. Only the slight breeze coming in through the windows offers a modicum of reprieve.

Like any other unbearable thing, this oppressive heat invading my days is an occasion for exercising patience and endurance. Summer is almost over, and the heat will let up soon. For now, I think of my place as a free sauna that will make me lose weight AND sweat out all the toxins and impurities from my body.

Different weather here, nice solution to it. Not sure if it would work for the dead heat you're putting up with, but here it is anyway. http://zoqy.net/?p=1725
