As i’ve said so many times in the past on this blog, i often suffer thru the Summer in Spain. Some years it’s better, others it’s worse..when the temperatures soar, putting up with the heat day after day can be tough. And this goes not only for northern-born Celts like me..i know many native Iberians who feel the same. But the last couple of years the Summers have not been too bad. Three years ago, in 2011, July was quite mild – i blogged about it here – and this year again, after a relatively cool June, the first three weeks of July have brought us just four hot days. When the temps started to rise last week i thought “well, this is it..here comes the heat” and yes we had a few pretty hot days..but temperatures plunged at the weekend, from 30-31ºC last Wednesday-Thursday in Cercedilla (1200m) to barely 20º on Saturday-Sunday. They’ll be back up again this week and there’s still plenty of time for the heat to hit of course, but pretty cool so far!
