I found this old photo of the Klementinum.
For anyone who is not here in Czech – we are in the midst of a heat wave. Czech is warmer than Italy at the moment, and warmer than most of the rest of Europe.
For anyone who is here but can’t read the Czech news – yesterday’s high at Prague’s official weather station in the Klementinum was 37.3°C.
For anyone who does not understand Celsius – that is 99°F. Baking.
Luckily the humidity has been low so it has not really been uncomfortable. At least for those of us who grew up in desert and savannah climates.
As I write from my un-air-conditioned office…
Picture this… because I didn’t have my camera with me on Saturday (or ever):
A chalkboard outside of a pub (U Kozla in Žižkov) – the top half is a picture of an intensely shining sun with “35°C” written underneath it. Below that, a picture of a frosty frothy glass of beer with the caption “7°C”. Nice spontaneous marketing.
