This is officially the hottest day of the current year in my books and perhaps one of the hottest that I have had to face. The temperature hit 94 Â°F / 34 Â°C with a humidity factor of 39%. Is that all? I could have sworn that it was something like 42 or 49 Â°C; walking outside in the streets was damn near torturous and I can’t imagine working out in this kind of heat. My heart goes out to the people who have to do manual labour in this weather and make a living. Atleast I don’t have to do that.
A haircut was in desperate need and I went out to do that just around the 1 pm mark. Earlier, I had made my way to Penta Menaka to get a data cable and a 1GB memory card for my Samsung phone. However, it being Good Friday, most of the shops were closed there including the one where I bought the cell from. So I went into another one and got the 1GB card but they were out of data cables for my particular model. A visit to GCDA complex proved in vain as they too did not have the cable, including an official Samsung dealer store.
Having a cold mocha frappe did help some in battling the humidity but that only works if you remain indoors and you have access to a big fan or, even better, air-conditioning. So a few minutes after I stepped outside, I was perspiring like it was the end of the world. Not a fun way to spend the day.
