Yes it's great zuberdust but unfotunately the humidity is now arriving with it, and it becomes very uncomfortable moving around, just a 100mtr walk and the sweat is running down your face, chest, back, everywhere.
Last August here on one day the humidity reached 97%, can you imagine that!!!! it was like being in a Turkish bath.
As above, how is the weather at the moment? looking at the forecasts it is pretty hot.
See you all soon, flying over on friday for a couple of weeks. Should I bring some extra sun cream?
Looking forward to cold Efes in iced glasses.
Lots and lots of high factor, don't forget the after sun. It is never cool now, except for in the freezer
ZD-mint ice-cream-one of my favouritedswhich they don't have in Turkey, even though mint is abundant at the moment.
Can anyone tell me the logic of why it feels hotter at night?
The heat has just begun and here I am moaning!!
You won't get rehydrated by drinking Efes, in fact it will make you even more dehydrated. Stick to water.
I second that. I got heatstroke once last Summer and it is very important to rehydrate with something like Dyralite (at least I think that's what it is called). Boots do their own cheaper equivalent but is essentially the same stuff. Tastes pretty awful but does the job.Summer before last was the last I shall ever spend in Turkey, I was so ill with the heat. Yes I had the sun block, the water, the long floppy clothes, the stupid hat, the lot and all I got was 3 doses of heat stroke.
The stuff that probably saved my life was DYRALITE. its the little sachets of granules you get from any chemists in UK that you would usually take after a bad stomach upset It replaces the essential fluids (those unable to be replaced by Efes alone) and at least stops the upset stomach and spinning head.
Do please take some with you, it is so worthwhile if you don't get on with the heat too well.
Thunder here at the moment oh and the rain has just started. Glad my pool has been sorted as looks like I'll be in it a lot next week. Off to Boots now for the Dyralite
