It’s just too hot, bring on fan death

Weather30-july-2012

Sweltering. It’s stinkingly hot where I live. Korea is under a high pressure anti-cyclone at the moment. This might have something to do with what’s known as ‘the rainy season’ here in Korea. If it’s not hot and humid, it’s raining and humid. Fun times. Sadly my landlord refuses to install an air conditioner. This means I have to resort to using a conventional fan on myself during the times I’m at home.

I’ve also noted that if it wasn’t for the humidity levels it would be much more comfortable. At night I leave the fan on. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve had to direct the wave of air from the fan over my head and upper body. Bucking local superstition while keeping cool. Yay.
