Turning Up the Heat in Hobart
If the weather report says the maximum temperature in Hobart was only, say, 18 degrees C, don't believe it. Well, it's true, but it feels a lot hotter. Because the ozone layer down here is thinner, the sun feels really harsh. The air is cool, so as soon as you go into shade it feels cool. But in the sun, it's really, really hot. I'm gonna have to be careful not to get sunburned.
