Yep, that’s the truth! by Janet Carr Posted on July 15, 2016July 1, 2016 Although to be fair, winter seems colder in South Africa because everything is built for heat, and there is no central heating. And summer seems hotter in Europe because everything is built for cold and there is no air conditioning! Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInEmailTumblrPocketPrintRedditLike this:Like Loading...
I think that’s a bit extreme!
I don’t think that people would go lying on the beach when it’s only 20 degrees! Especially German people who enjoy their holidays in hot and sunny south of France or Spain. I think they know better.
20 degrees is not bad on a spring day but it is rather chilly for a summer day as the expected temperature is usually 28 to 35 degrees (in Paris which is similar to most places in Germany).
Also l have had the opportunity to spend a few winters in Soutj Africa and l wish l had 20 degrees!! The cold was really intense and biting as it can be in most African countries that time of the year.
Where abouts do you allude to, Janet, when you say there is no air conditioning in Europe???
When you go to France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia etc there is air conditioning in most house/flat as it would be unbearable otherwise between April and September.
I know it’s different in northern Europe but be careful not to generalize!
