My friend Brock writes from Australia to inform me how hot the weather has been where he’s staying and to share this short amusing story.
It’s smoking in Byron Bay (just thought I’d tell you because I heard that it was snowing and 5 below back home). It was 30 above here and I thought that it would be a good idea to get up early so that I could spend the whole day at the beach. I got up at 7:30 and was at the beach until sunset—unfortunately I neglected to put on any sunscreen—everyone at the hostel was like holy shit and this one girl even wanted to call an ambulance. Needless to say I was in a lot of pain, but after lathering up in aloe vera I feel a lot better. Moral of the story is, enjoy the snow!
Hope you’re feeling better soon Brock, and P.S. it hasn’t actually snowed here yet.
