Well yesterday Pat was in the Maison de la Bible all day and I was in with her in the morning.
At lunchtime I came out of the nice, cool, stone-built bookshop into the heat of the afternoon sun on the hottest day of the year so far, 38°C.
When it's 38°C in Bordeaux it's a bit like when you check the barbecue to see if it's nice and hot.
The sun beats down at you mercilessly and you need to drink lots of water and seek the shade.
Everyone walks very slowly. Very slowly indeed.
Thankfully there were nice breezes, but still the side facing the sun was getting nicely cooked.
I had an errand to run in town, then home on the nice air-conditioned tram!
