Hot Summer in Bucharest

It has been a hot summer in Bucharest, and it looks like it’s going to get warmer:

Psychologically, it helps to think of it being in the thirties outside. Ah, snow…

Unfortunately, this is just our Celsius forecast. Thirty-eight Celsius is just as hot as 101 Fahrenheit. It actually doesn’t take all that long to make the mental switch to metric, at least with units we use frequently, like kilometers per hour or buying potatoes by the kilogram.

We live in a large, concrete apartment block, with no air conditioning, but we’ll make it. We are on the first floor (which you would call the second floor in the States), and we have large trees outside our south-facing windows, so it doesn’t get totally unbearable. Still, we will be looking forward to fall weather.

Grace and Peace
