I felt cold quite often while in Holland last week.  Even when I was outside walking in the sun.  But then it was around 20 degrees C (68 F) which is cooler than I keep my air conditioner at home during the summer.  I’m not exactly used to Japanese weather, but I am better able to cope with hot weather.  Today, in Tokyo, the heat index is 42 C (107 F).  The actual temperature is 35 C (95 F) but the heat index explains why attempting to hang out the laundry makes me feel as if I’ve been exercising for an hour.

I’m not sure what temperature I prefer but I think that somewhere around 25 C (77 F) feels good.

    For me, 20 C is nice but not hot, and 35 C is the warmest I can comfortably handle. So I’d say 25 – 30 is the optimum range – from memory that was the temperature range in Luxor in February 5 years ago!

    True 🙂 35 C is usually much too hot in Japan, but that’s because of the humidity. I much prefer dry heat.
