We're Having a Heat Wave

The forecast for Mexico City calls for high temperatures between 89 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit for the next five days... an unusual stretch of hot weather for a city at an altitude of more than 7000 feet above sea level.  Everyone is talking (and complaining) about the weather.

Here are a couple of funny pictures that Alejandro has received from friends...

"I'm tired of so much heat."

"Necklace for putting up with the heat"

The Mexico City government has issued a heat advisory, recommending that people wear sunscreen, use sunglasses and a hat, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, and to not eat food from street vendors since it will spoil quickly in the heat.  (That last recommendation is certainly going to anger the thousands of vendors on the streets.)

At least I'm not in Mérida, Yucatán.  Even though it is one of my favorite cities in Mexico, I would not want to put up with today's high temperature of 107 degrees Fahreinheit (41 degrees Celsius)!
