Warm and sweaty (and slightly crispy)

What can I say. The title says it all. Italy hit 36 degrees today. That counts as warm in my book. It’s hot as balls here. And that, yes, makes me very sweaty. Despite hiding under thick Mediterranean pine canopy all day, and wearing my t shirt most of the day, I feel somewhat burnt as well. My white boii skin is just shit for these conditions. My arms and face are tanned from working the field and all, but the moment I expose my milky white flesh shirt to sun, it’s like ‘wtf are you doing buddy?’ I know I know. Even more sunscreen tomorrow. I will, I promise. I also promised my wife.

By the way, if you were thinking of abandoning ship, and we’re already considering looking for better blogs: there’s no better time than now. Most blogs at this point will be better quality than mine, at least this week, and I can promise that this is what it will be like this week or two. It’s going to be just warm and sweaty and slightly boring stuff. I’ll try to spare you on warm and sweaty details, but no guarantees there either. Also: I know I promised pictures and stuff, but honestly, I didn’t even bring my phone today… Forgive me. Some day I’ll be better.

This is a horrible shot I just took from my camper window… The blog may suck a bit for a while, but it’s still written with love for you all.
