How to Beat the Heat

Yesterday, the high reached 35° C, or 95° F. Texans are "supposed" to be used to the heat, but Texans are used to the heat AND air conditioning. Typical Belgian stores, café and apartments do not have air conditioning. Needless to say, I took 3 cold showers yesterday, and spent most of the day outside. I will also add that napping indoors proved to be gross. Hopefully yesterday was the hottest day of the year.

So, how did we beat the heat?

We went to church where it was nice and cool.

We bought some fans.

We sat outside and drank lots of water and watched the World Cup.

We stood under the tall cheering Dutchman's shadow.

We swung in the park and tried to make sense of the architecture.

We went to Beleuvenissen, which is a series of outdoor concerts in and around the city. 

We went for the best ice cream in Leuven.
