This is the 18th summer that we have lived through in the province of Almería. It feels to me like it is the hottest one so far by a long way.

I am forever showering and changing my clothes as I feel sweaty all the time.

We have used the aircon many more times this summer than we have ever done before.

We still play golf around 3 times a week. However we have started playing just 9 holes of golf instead of 18 holes. On a regularly basis in the last month. As it is too hot to be on the course playing 18 holes.

Our bikes have not seen the light of day for some time now. They are also unlikely to reappear from the trastero until sometime in September at the earliest.

I am really looking forward to the temperature dropping sometime in the not too distant future.
