From you fellow Florentine heat-waved, einformcd!! Here, we are supposed to have hot summers, but such a hot end of August was unbelievable. A stretch of some ten days when temperatures consistently were measured above 40 deg. C in town. Absolutely horrible, except for Texan tourists who, I imagine, arriving here didn’t find much of a differenceThe funny thing is that in the news they keep using the term “nice weather.” Nice weather? This weather is trying to bite at us!! And if it is a sign of times to come (which it is) it is very, very, bad
