Libya's a bloody hot country in summer, anyway, but it's even more lively now with a heatwave. The AC struggles at the best of times.

Outdoors in the mid-afternoon is just about impossible for more than a couple of minutes, as I was reminded this afternoon searching for the internet router which the gardeners had moved to an obscure region to protect it from the lawn sprinklers...

Now, at 11pm, with the AC having been on maximum all afternoon and evening, it's down to 27C indoors. Which means it's just about cool enough to get to sleep. The bathroom has no AC of course, and it's like walking into an oven when you go in there.
