Scorchio!!!  The Iberian Peninsula has been experiencing rather a large rise in the mercury levels recently.   August is usually the month for 40º plus weather, but the end of June and beginning of July has been seriously hot.  When it’s boiling hot and dry we try everything we can to keep cool, shutters are shut on our Casita, blinds pulled and shade sought out.  A siesta and a later bedtime is essential for the boys as the air stays warm even after the sun goes down and even the slightest of a gentle breeze can make a huge difference.

We seek out refreshing shade, ice pops, swimming, watermelon, fans, sprinklers, cold drinks.  Spending time around water becomes a joy, so cooling and invigorating; a day at the lake, the beach, by the river or just playing in the village font .  Being British, we can’t complain about the hot weather (ha!), but we are looking forward to a slight of a drop in temperature soon!
