It is so dry and parched. The wind whips up the sand and dust and deposits it on everything. Even the water tastes dusty. Yesterday the mercury hit 50 C.
There were a few drops of rain yesterday; I dreamt that it transformed the land overnight. Everywhere it was lush and green. Plants sprang up through the cracked earth; there was a vegetable garden and bright pink flower blossoms.
And of course it was deliciously cool, in my Garden of Eden.
