The time of year has come when it's meltingly, unbearably, infernally hot in Maputo. Yesterday it was 45C (113F) and ridiculously humid, with no breeze. Today is not much better. The heat wave has been going on for about 4 days now, and according to the weather forecast I heard on the radio, it should last through Saturday. I had a good laugh when the radio meterologist said, with much seriousness, "Calores elevados podem provocar desconfortos humanos," as if it were some breaking new bit of news. Last time I checked, every single person living in Maputo is aware that high temperatures can cause human discomfort.
Anyhow, we are sweating here. It's too hot to do much anything except sit in front of an air conditioner, fan, or in a pocket of shade.
I can't wait until tomorrow, when I will work a half day and plan on sitting in the pool drinking shandies all afternoon to ward off the brutal heat.
