Summer in the City

Well it´s officially verano again.  So far it has not been like the summer we had last year which was pretty much oh-my-god-i-am-going-to-die every day, but today someone certainly decided to crank up the intensity of the heat.  Because Buenos Aires is a city without beaches, every summer the government constructs these kind of fake beaches on the river bank, where people can go to at least get a sense of what it is like to be at the beach in the summer.  They also set up umbrellas and chairs in the parks where people go to tan (they love a good tanning session in the park here).  In this park there was actually a tiny shower set up so that you could get all hot and sweaty and then at least feel the sensation of water against your body and cool off slightly.  Something to do?  Yes.  Even better than the real thing?  Not a chance.
