Today is June 21st, the official first day of summer.
I know summer is meant to be all about birds twittering, lots of sun and long days. But let's face it: it's actually about wasps, sunburn, sweaty thighs sticking to plastic chairs, and the sun rising before you even get to sleep. In Madrid, the city where I live, temps commonly reach anything up to 40ºC (approx. 104ºF) in July and August. So, to be honest, I don't like summer at all. Anyway, there's three whole months to enjoy it as much as possible, before it's time to start complaining about winter.
