Quick link: How to Stay Cool in Djibouti
Yesterday Melibelle in Tokyo published my post with suggestions on how to stay cool in Djibouti. The caveat is: it is pretty much impossible to stay cool in Djibouti unless you a) leave, or b) work for an organization or company (like the embassy) that pays your electricity bills.
As I type this, I am sitting beneath a ceiling fan, in a room that had been cooled by the a/c and then the a/c got turned off. In other words, the room is the ‘coolest in the house.’ I am performing the arduous task of typing. Sweat is literally dripping down my forehead onto the keyboard. Literally snaking down my back. Literally leaving a damp spot from my butt sweat on the couch.
Have you ever stood up from an enjoyable evening at your friends’ house only to find a damp imprint of your ass on the couch?
That happens to me all the time.
