Sorry for the total lack of updates recently/ We're now in ISP period, where we don't have official classes every day, and we're just working on our research projects. The thing is, it's getting up to 105 on a regular basis, so that pretty much eliminates anything between noon and 5 PM. I very stupidly made the decision to go out around noon to do some research, having slept in a bit too much this morning. Words don't begin to describe how hot it is. I had my backpack with me, with my laptop, and in the 100 feet to the road where I hailed a cab, I was already pretty muched drenched in sweat where my backpack was. Of course, the cab didn't have A/C. Ironically, a lot of people don't even use A/C at the height of the heat, because the extra heat generated from the cooling system can wind up frying the engine. I haven't heard back about the Yemen program yet, which is making me incredibly frustrated. Sana'a , where the program is based, is up in the mountains, so if I do get in, at least it won't be AS hot.
