The heat here knocks you off your feet. It drains and dehydrates you to the point of exhaustion. A large proportion of the day is spent refuelling; resting to regain energy and drinking to rehydrate yourself. The water run is also essential, as you go through at least 2 litres of water a day. Outside, the sun burns your scalp as you kick up the hot sand with your feet. Though you have showered only recently, sweat is already running in rivulets down your back and your face. Your clothes are soaked through, and you raise a hand to wipe your face. The only relief is going indoors, and sitting by a fan or using air conditioning. Only then do you come back to life; focus, humour and animation return.
