The Heat

The temperature is about 39 degrees Celsius in Islamabad and apart from a few drops this morning, there is no sign of rain or cloud. I heard it can and will easily go above 40 during May. This is the same city that cools down to below zero during winter.

The good thing is that the weather is very dry which makes it bearable, though I’m having trouble believing you can ever drink enough water here. Even 15-20 glasses (yes I’m counting) of water a day is not enough. The bright sunny skies make for great riding, but force you to make frequent watering stops and I already have quite a tan, first one in 5 years I think. The heat isn’t that bad overall, but I really miss snow.
