Home Heat Home

I'm back in Kuwait.  I was driving home from the airport when I noticed the temperature - something we take for granted here.  It's hard to describe where forty-plus-degrees-celsius-heat comes from when the sun is nowhere to be seen! Look at my car's thermometer after 8pm and more than an hour after sunset.

I saw it at 46 when driving near Messilah and then it dropped back to 44.  At almost 11pm it was still 40!

I need a holiday.

Too much heat for me. I cannot stand it really hot. Sometimes I miss snow. Looks like your car is still new.

My car is new... but not this new :)

This is a loan car while they fix the bumper. It was hit whilst parked on my driveway - the coward drove off!

What make/model is this? And what do you drive? I like the dashboard on this car... *a LOT*!

I honestly don't mind the heat, I prefer staying here in the summer rather then leaving because the country is mostly empty which is pretty good.
