Ides of March

The ides of March and the temperature has crossed the 40c mark, I am beginning to believe that it will hit the 50's come the hot months of April and May.

Having spent a week in Niamey, it was rather surprising to find that it was actually hotter back in Ouaga, perhaps the proximity of the Niger had something to do with it.

Since each day is a new one for me I've been keeping a close eye on the thermometer, noting down the highs as the are crossed - from low thirties in November I've sen the mercury edge up to and beyond the 40 mark and I tell you ITS HOT. Its the dry desiccating heat of low humidity, scorching hot sun, Saharan winds which debilitates the functions leaving one languid.

Since Saturday, I've gone through more than ten liters of water - that's 6 bottles in 72hrs, not counting the liquid intake from 2 cups of tea, 5 mugs of coffee and perhaps the 2 soda's Isip on each day!

Its hot, and not a sign of rain to come (Which I hear makes things even worse, imagine the heat plus the humidity?)

Now, I got to go melt...
