It’s a very, very beautiful day today with a very clear sky.
It’s also very, very hot with very high humidity. It’s comfortable at home with the air conditioner, but going outside means being hit in the face with a heatwave. Same thing as when you’re walking on the street and a huge bus goes past you and the hot air exhaust from the air conditioner hits you in the face. Except the bus stays there until you go back inside.
I just come from an appointment and I had to walk to the train station. The residential streets are completely empty. You can’t see a living soul on the street under this sun. Walking for just a few minutes implies sweating like a pig.
And still, I love the Japanese summer. :-)
