This week, summer officially started here in this part of the globe. Highest recorded temperature so far was 34.6 degrees Celsius. It is expected to be a scorching summer. So far, it rains occasionally in this neighborhood so the heat dissipates for a few hours then humidity sets in.
Certainly not my fave season but heck we only have 2 of them so I just drink plenty of water and try to grin and bear it sporting my 'wet' look as I shed buckets of sweat!
So while I'm perspiring, my dear sister is currently experiencing below zero temperatures with snow to boot. She is in Gdansk, Poland for a trade fair. I've never been to Eastern Europe because it was still under Communist rule when my father was assigned in Belgium, 3 decades ago.
As I sit here looking at these pictures she sent me through email, it makes this humidity somewhat bearable. Feasting my eyes on snow filled attractions in a far flung land eases my discomfort.
