Kolkata is HOT

We have been feeling a bit sluggish here in Kolkata (Calcutta), India. This has been accompanied by some headaches too. We figured it had something to do with the inordinate amount of dust and air pollution. While I'm sure they contribute, the temperature does seems to be playing its part as well.

Now, this is the end of the cooler season, and so I'm told it gets much worse in a couple of months. That said, the highs are about 99 degrees all this week, and it doesn't exactly get cold at night (76), although it feels quite cool in comparison. I'm grateful it is the dry season, and we only are at just under 40% humidity.

Anyway, so we are glad we paid for an air conditioned room!
