Dealing with the heat

I spent a year sitting in a room at Aramco, Saudi Arabia.  At least it was well cooled, except when the air conditioning went wrong, in which case they improvised this giant hose into the room from a standby AC unit just outside the door.

One day I went round to the frame and one of the Filipinos looked entirely different- he had started wearing a wig! having been used to him bald as a billiard ball up until then it was hard to keep a straight face. In fact, whilst I took this photo it was hard to keep the camera still, I was laughing so much.

You can see how long the frame was, I was about half way down.
