Phew, what a scorcher!
Liberian folklaw tells us that at this time of year the sun grows more aggressive as it realises its days are numbered by the imminent arrival of the rain...so we are experiencing some serious heat right now - daily indoor temperatures of 34 degrees centigrade which drop overnight to 31 (instead of the 28 we are used to). Thank the Lord that we have generators that keep going throughout the dark to keep fans on us as we sleep. Today we retreated to the pool and air conditioned dining hall of the Anastasis for a few hours before heading home again. We are very excited about the imminent arrival of the rains, where both temperature and humidity drop and maybe we will be able to sleep under duvets again. Olly
