I’ve just watched a news report on the sunrise of the summer solstice at Stonehenge and people were so rugged up that it looked like our winter. Sunrise on the summer solstice here in Australia would have people probably dressed in T-shirts and shorts.
People who complain about the weather and winter here in Australia have no idea!
I lived there for year (taught English…. like so many others)and I couldn’t believe how hot and humid it got. One morning I found that my leather boots had grow a fine furry fungus about half an inch all over them.
I used to get so chaffed that I’d paint my backside with so much mercurochrome that I looked like a baboon in heat when I used to go to the sento.
