THE HEAT




The sun is already up at 05.30 am . Opening the door is like opening a car bonet . You turn the showerknob only to bath in the scalding hot water (No the heater is not on). I tell Myself
WELCOME TO THE DESERT

This sounds much worse than the blasting hot summers of Vijayawada, my hometown. I dreaded the advent of summer sometimes!! But your desert sounds unbearable!!

Please stay cool and safe :) Good luck..

I don't know how you people manage to 'stay alive' in Muscat. I went for two days in July and thought I was going to die. I began writing my will while waiting for the car to warm up (or cool down). I couldn't touch the steering wheel for the first ten minutes! Come to Salalah!! It's 23 degrees and freezing cold in the mountains and raining everyday!
