I like it when there is consensus in the iraqi blogosphere. This time everybody is agreeing that it is very very hot in Iraq. AYS from Iraq at a glance is threatening to melt away. Riverbend tells us that she can't blog because she is preoccupied with observing the shape, color and movement of the heat. Ladybird posts pictures of Iraqis taking their clothes off. Iraq the model people tell us that the heat makes them curse at themselves but they are still optimistic.
Ok, ok, ok, we got it. It is very very hot in Iraq.
Here is my advice for overheating body situation. Take a sheet or a sarong and dip it in water. I suppose an abaya would do as well. Let the water drip, don't squeeze it out. Wrap yourself with the wet cloth from head to toe. After a while you will feel that you are walking around with your own private air conditioner. Keep it on all day long. You won't look pretty but you will feel cool.
