Let me set the scene, In Muscat today the temperature is around 40 degrees, the humidity is at 76% and we are under a big horrible dust cloud – The air is thick, muggy and hot. I’m already on my second change of clothes today. What I really didn’t want to happen just did, we had a power cut.
A power cut doesn’t sound very exciting, sure we can live without wifi and hair driers, but when the air conditioning suddenly stops without warning things can get a bit uncomfortable.
After a sweaty couple of hours someone answered my prayers and the power came back to life. I’m now sitting under the breeze cooling down but It got me thinking… Where are the hottest counties in the world?!
Out of 196 countries in the world, these are the top 10 hottest;
10 – Mexico
2- Saudi Arabia
The highest ever temperature recorded in Libya was apparently 57.8 degrees Celsius, ouch!!
How did people manage to survive without air conditioning?!
