By the six

Cayman funerals are so exhausting, mainly because they take place during the day, under the HOT sweltering Cayman sun. I've been to two so far and I've only been here for about seven months - isn't that just sad? And of course while I generally try to avoid staying out in the hot sun, but at times like these one can't help it. How intense is the sun? Well, you can say good bye to your carefully applied make up, while you, along with everyone else, perspire like no body's business and basically feel like you're going to melt into the sand. I feel for the men though - dressed to the nines in their tuxes and suits, we women can't help but imagine what it must feel like to be layered in at least three layers of fabric in that heat.

I cannot even imagine how hot it must be. Is the humidity high as well? Even in March, I thought Bermuda was humid! Always prefer the winter months there...I am very sorry to hear that you have had to attend two funerals in just seven months.

Thank you, BB. I also meant to say that Dubai funerals were probably also exhausting, but as a kid, the sun is not so much of a bother...
