It`s been hot, hot for the past week. Yesterday we had 28 degrees (that`s like 82 degrees Fahrenheit - CRAZY HOT in Finland)! No clouds in the sky, people sunbathing in the parks of Kallio (the part of town I live in) in the daytime and just hanging out or playing petanque and mölkky at night. Even at night the
temperature`s been about 20 degrees, that`s how August should be: dark, warm nights.
I`ve been spending most days and nights outdoors. Hanging out with friends and having coffee at the outdoor cafe nearby. I think this is what summer felt like when I was a kid.
