One of those funny things about living in Niger is that even though the temperature is up over 100', our kids still find the pool freezing. Their strategy is to swim for a little while... then lay on the hot (and it is quite hot - when they stand up, their skin is beet red from where it touched the pool deck) cement. Because it is so hot and the harmattan winds are still blowing on many days, the rate of evaporation makes it seem frigid, not to mention the fact that 89 or 90' water does feel cool when it is 107' out. Their daddy won't even hardly go into the pool until the water is around 95'. So, afternoons at the pool are very cyclical, consisting of spurts of swimming followed by long periods of warming up again, stretched out on the hot concrete. It still remains one of our favorite places to be on a warm afternoon!
