Hot summer temperatures

One quite forgets just how hot the summers are here in Tunisia.  Each year it comes as a shock when the mercury in the thermometer keeps on rising.  According to the BBC weather forecast today was 41°C and tomorrow it will be 39°C.  The high humidity levels makes the already torrid conditions even more enervating.  The following website gives good advice on staying cool in hot and humid weather in order to avoid sunburn, dehydration, heat cramps and heat stroke.

Here is a photograph of an idyllic and secluded beach in southern Turkey.  Just looking at the picture makes one feel slightly refreshed.
