Personally, I'd rather be in these snow-covered mountains in New Zealand than sweltering in the canicule affecting Paris, much of Western Europe and the United States. The French government's advice, as people literally are dying from the worst heatwave since August 2003? Spend as much time as possible in air-conditioned grocery stores and movie theatres. No suggestions as to how we get any sleep! How are you coping with the relentless heat?
