I thought we were over the worst of the heat by the end of April, but no, the nights have got much hotter and steamier in May. We have been fairly lucky the last few years, the monsoon set in early and things were cooling off by mid April.
This year the weather remained extremely hot until the third week of April, then we had a combination of extremely heavy monsoon showers and, whenever the rain stopped, a return of the heat. Nevertheless on the whole, things were a little cooler during the last couple of weeks of April.
I was trying to sit under a fan a little while ago while oppressive waves of hot air kept beating down. Sometimes I wake up to find my head bathed in sweat, once my pillow was quite wet. The fact that I use a mosquito net makes it a bit hotter, but I fear the mosquitoes more than the heat.
I am a sound sleeper, so once I get into bed I rarely wake up before dawn, but these days I am occasionally wakened by the stifling heat, although I generally get back to bed fast enough.
I would envy my friends who have air-conditioners, except that they have been so heavily stung by the increases in their electricity recently, it hard to feel anything more than pity.
