I am back in Tokyo and the heat has turned me into a slug – or at least some sort of slow moving sticky creature. The heat index yesterday claimed it felt like 40 C (104 F) in the city. I just know that it’s horribly hot. I dislike the humidity that helps it be hot morning, noon, and night. We do have air conditioners but they are not reacting well with my chest cold. I can’t decide if I’d rather dissolve in the heat or be cooler and coughing. The other nasty thing about the heat is that blog posts end up being whiny like this one as I can’t think of anything much beyond being uncomfortable and hot!
