Hypertravel Hostel News: Good-bye Summer! High Time for Travelers in Tucson… 

Hypertravel Hostel, Tucson

Right now it’s 99f/37c degrees in Tucson, Arizona, USA, and counting: 99.1, 99.2, 99.3, etc. Bottom line: it’ll probably hit 100f before the day is over, which is significant for a couple reasons, 1) It’s the first 100f day of September, and 2) It’ll probably be the last 100f day of the year, إن شاء الله

To say the least: Tucson is one hot mother, and that 100f threshold is one convenient standard, maybe TOO convenient. I mean: this is a city that gets almost 100 of them per year, and that is the stuff of fame, or rather infamy, so I use 40 Celsius as a kinder and more sympathetic standard, ONLY 104f. That way the number of days go WAY down way fast, (Brit: rather a lot, and rather quickly)…

It’s a nice skill to have, too, to be able to convert temps from one to the other scale, far more useful as a hostel owner (Hypertravel Hostel) than any of the small handful of languages that I’m conversant in. After all, most foreigners don’t come to the US, at least not alone, unless they’re at least conversant in English, and once they do that, they sure don’t want to condescend to speak the native lingo with a gringo (call me ‘rhyme-a-dime’)…

But temperature conversions are another thing. Almost no foreigners know Fahrenheit, except for a few older Canadians and Brits. The ablility to do rough sums in one’s head comes in handy then. The ability to withstand Tucson heat is another thing. You can have June and July. If I’m here next year, it won’t be in those months; that’s for sure… C U soon, I hope…
