In comparison, it’s been a cool year in Kuwait… That is, up until this weekend. The heat seems to have suddenly turned on and we’re back to the point where home air conditioning units break down, car air conditioning can’t tackle the temperatures, and you step foot outside and you have a stream of sweat dripping down your back. Eew. Gross. I know. Today we decided to beat the heat by heading to the Hilton for an afternoon swim. We were happy we did. It seems that they’ve recently turned on the pool cooling units and it was lovely to cool off for a while.
