With a body temperature of 38ºC you run a fever, with 39ºC/40ºC you run a very high fever and become delirious; this might illustrate a comparison when it is stated that in Spain temperatures in August have been ranging from 30ºC up to 44.8ºC (Seville Airport).
Whether it is due to global warming or just another one of those unusually hot summers as recorded 60 years ago, of course is a matter of debate between scientists of different beliefs. Or is it personal interests? I suppose the truth will eventually be known in time.
Meanwhile let's get back to our beloved Costa del Sol. The weather has cooled down a little and the nights are definitely cooler. We are now clearly making our way towards autumn and rain time, a rain that will be most welcomed by all local farmers.
September also marks the return to school for all the children of the Costa of all nationalities. It is the return to school that dictates the end to the holidays and the immeasurable fun.
All families with a home on the Costa now return to their chosen life style and join all the others who every year return just to escape from the cold winter in their own countries.
Welcome back everyone, I wish I too had taken some time off and had gone away for a couple of weeks at least. It is what I say every year but then if I do go, who would be left behind to look after the shop when the summer holidaymakers are here?
