Wow, is it ever hot. Where I grew up it got hot like this but the humidity was less and it usually cooled down at night. Not so much here. I do not really mind though. You just make different choices. For the past month, we have hosted a young man (15) from France. We have had a wonderful time showing him around the Northwest. He fit into our family like a recently discovered cousin. I took him to the airport today and I will miss him enormously. As fun as it is to host an overseas student it is ever so hard to say 'good-bye'. So, I won't say 'good-bye' I will say 'a biento' (till later).
