45°C the shade?! :shock:

How do you cope with that heat and where is the big bottling plant to supply the water for you all!

In the sun the surface temp is about 70 to touch. You can imagine something metallic.

It's stinky hot. Rainy season starts soon where the temps drop about 5 10 degrees but it's like the flipping ocean is coming to take the land back. We are right about where the Nile gains it's head of water...The biggest swamp in the world.

Our water comes from bore holes and then treated in an RO plant.

I have an air conned lab though so the temps hover round 33 degrees just about cool enough for my analysers to function.

Yeah I guess. We aren't too bad though as tours go this one at least doesn't have any kinetic activity causing horrific wounds.

It's mostly malaria and a scattering of other African disease causing the problems. We have a displaced people camp with about 120000 people in it about 500 meters away. When the wind blows the right way...... whew! Worst thing ever.

So Jez is doing real life Farcry 2 then ¬_¬

It gets to say 22°C and I am just waiting for the next ice age to come as fast it can. I'd be a puddle of goo in them temps and super narky :lol:

Wow, now that's a friendly welcome.

In the spoiler pic Harry's beard is well placed but "the collar and cuffs don't match". :)
