“It’s too darn hot!”

In the last few days, the temperatures in Portugal are between 40 degrees Celsius and 45 (104 to 113 Fahrenheit), which is so very hot that we got a weather red alert.

To top it there were more than hundred fires all over Portugal. Portugal has lots of forests, and every summer there are fires, some small some big.

This time there was a very big one, about 100 km north of us, that had a huge death toll – more than 60 people died – and so the whole country is officially mourning for three days.

Meanwhile, our dogs, who are street smart, pass their days inside the cool house, sleeping the heat away.

In the photo are three strays we picked up 3 weeks ago, Ami (in front), Sheldon and Galga. Rest assured the other four are also sleeping
