Heatwave hits Holland

Aaargghhh. 18.00 hrs and still 36 degrees Celcius. By way of comparison, in Beirut it was around 29 degrees and in Surinam around 33. If I am not mistaken this would be Holland's first heatwave for this year, as temperatures soared to 25 degrees, three days of which peaked above 30 degrees. But let's face it, this country was not built for such temperatures. The same goes for most of its inhabitants.
