It's a heat that lingers even when the sun goes down.
Even the grass is hot and laundry hung out on the line is dry within 2 hours.
There you have it. The Aussie Summer.
How do we do to keep cool?
We go to air-conditioned shopping malls.
We hop into the refreshing waters of swimming pools.
We keep the air-conditioning on the entire time at home.
We head out to a shady park when we feel cabin fever settling in.
We have cold meals and drinks.
And when we feel guilty about keeping the air-conditioning on all day for two days in a row ...
We lay on the floor tiles right underneath the fan set on the highest speed possible and be entertained by our mobile devices.
