This blog is fully airconditioned

Temperatures are rising here in Japan. We've had peaks of 36 degrees Celsius (that would be about 97 in Fahrenheit), but the major problem for a northwest-european like me is the humidity. Get outside for exactly two nanoseconds and the first sweat drops start appearing on your forehead. Maybe if I could stop time at the first nanosecond I would actually believe heaven's weather feels like this. But it doesn't. So at days like these, after drinking the night before, I prefer to stay inside, do some research, enveloped by the artificial cold air produced by my best buddy Hitachi. The curtains closed, I have created my own space, the box is sealed. All contact with the outside passes electronic media: cell phone, tv, internet. The age of communication, inside a box. What if I were to open the curtains, could it be snowing? Yes, it's winter. Thank God I don't have to go outside in this freezing climate.
