I’m trying to distract myself from the sweaty hothouse that is my un air-conditioned train right now. Seriously, this heat! I have never had a summer like this before, and there is still another month to go. I am melting! Apparently Rovereto, and a lot of Italy, shuts up shop with the locals skipping town for most of August. I think they have the right idea.
I have spent the past week in Rome, attempting to learn in a language course and attempting to avoid the sun on afternoon wanderings around town. I don’t think I’m made for this kind of heat! Or this much sun. I was showing my weather allegiances by using my rainy Wellington bag as a book bag. That’s not to say I would prefer to be on winter right now, but that a little cloud cover would be amazing.
At least now I have a sun hat and a parasol (which wasn’t bought until my last afternoon, so it hasn’t actually been used yet..), portable shade for the win!
