Orwell: Dear diary — hot again!

I’ve just stumbled across an online version of George Orwell’s diaries.

I’ve only scratched the surface, but considering how much Orwell talks about the weather and crops, I feel somehow a little less pathetic for not being able to talk for five minutes without making a comment on the hot and sticky weather that greeted me upon my return from Africa back to Beirut. Who’da thunk I’d be pining for Congolese weather? It’s not much, but I suppose Goma’s got at least one thing going for it this time of year.
