You know it’s summer in the Middle East when….

Washing on the line dries, or should I say “bakes” in 30 minutes

There is no such thing as cold water…. unless it’s out of your fridge (tapwater currently about 36C)

You get up at 6.30am to sweep and tidy the garden…. to take advantage of the “cool” mornings when it is only about 30C.

And finally, when you get a stuck car on a trip it takes an hour to recover it – why so long I hear you ask?  Well the first 50 minutes is taken up by us sitting in our air conditoned cars debating over our walkie talkies who should get out in 45-50C heat to perform the recovery!
