I’m sure I will have many wonderful things to say about Kuwait, but for now, while I’m still shaking off the jet lag, learning to settle in, and battling a head cold, I want to mention the weather. Today the temperature will rise from 93F to 111F. And that’s the forecast, more or less, for the next seven days. But it’s not just hot. It’s more than that. The sunshine is sizzling hot. The air is oven hot. And the wind is not a relief from this heat. It’s hot, too. When I walk down the street a thick, heavy, heat wraps around my body like a boa. It’s both amazing and threatening.
