Presently in Aix-en-Provence - 26C and 43% humidity at 22h.

The ceiling fans are going, there's one other fan, and the windows are open(having to kill some mosquitoes, but fewer than we had in Philadelphia) with a bit of north to south breeze.
Tomorrow is going to be hot - 38C. Hotter on Wednesday at 39C. Friday is predicted at 41C.
Next week should be better. I hope.
Lots of water, ice cubes in the rosé, linen shirts, espadrilles, and straw hats. And plenty of sunscreen.

About GoneOffShore

Moved to France in September of 2018 after buying our apartment in 2017 after the debacle of the election. We're glad to be here, but we continue to be involved with what's happening in the US.
