Celcius / 5 * 9 +32 = Little Bunny Foo Foo
So, it's gotten hot lately . . . Really hot! One thing I'm still getting used to is the Celcius scale. It still sounds funny to hear someone say, "Oh my gosh, it must be forty degrees today!" So, I thought I would make you a conversion chart just to get a rough idea of how Celcius and Fahrenheit line up:
25 Celcius 77 Fahrenheit
30 Celcius 86 Fahrenheit
35 Celcius HOT
40 Celcius REALLY, REALLY HOT
Above 40 Dave turns into a nudist and lives in the refrigerator
And what do we do when it gets really hot? We eat rabbit! I was talking to a friend the other day and we decided to get a rabbit and cook it for dinner. So, after class a couple of days ago I went to the market to buy a rabbit. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, but I definitely wasn't expecting a fluffy little bunny that you would see in the pet store. But nonetheless, there he was, little bunny Foo Foo. So, I chopped up some vegetables and Foo Foo and voila! Dinner. I would tell you not to look at the picture if you're squeamish, but that wouldn't do you much good since the picture's at the top of the page and this sentence isn't.
A lot of folks are starting to head back to the States for the summer. I just had a really good friend take off last night, and another one is taking off tonight. This place is going to feel like a ghost town soon. Well, it's Cairo, so it probably will always feel crowded. But you know what I mean.
So, all in all . . . Life is good. A little warm for my tastes, but good.
