Thread Name: BS: Anyone complaining about the UK heat?
Subject: RE: BS: Anyone complaining about the UK heat?
I went to collect a pair of glasses yesterday, and the dispenser asked how I was liking the heat, and I said I preferred a touch of frost in the air. He said he was from Jamaice, but had adapted to Britain, and found it too much. I said I had grown up by the sea, and the sea breezes had made summer better, and we agreed that the combination of sea and hills was an improvement. I also sympathised about his work dress code. (Waistcoat over shirt and suit type trousers.)
I gather that Muslims who are travelling are not bound to fast completely, but can make up the days later - this was discussed in a run up to Olympics programme.
