It’s starting to heat up here in Mazatlán…it’s supposed to be 33 C (91 F)today and 59% humidity. We are still sleeping with the windows open and fans on – we aren’t in a hurry to get into air conditioning at night. It still cools off pretty nicely at night, thank goodness.
We have great ventilation in our house but most of the time for the last few days the thermometer has been around 84 F inside. We’re fine with that temperature as long as we can have a breeze – either natural or from a ceiling fan. We do drink a lot of water and iced tea to stay hydrated, and don’t walk too far if we can help it in the middle of the day.
People have lots of strategies to beat the heat. The woman at the top of this post is walking with an umbrella – a popular choice here. People carry cloths to blot perspiration. The woman below had an unusual choice – a box on her head!
