I am hiding out inside the Confederation Centre of the Arts. It’s 40 degrees C outside, they tell me (at least with the humidity factored in). In here it’s about 20 degrees cooler. I only wish they would rent out little bits of the floor and pillows: I’d happily sleep here tonight.
Later: laptop ran out of power (the Centre has free Wifi, but no power outlets) so I’ve moved upstairs to the equally cool Confederation Centre Public Library. The only downside up here is the very annoying buzz of the lights high above. But I’d trade cool for buzz any day. Open until 9:00 p.m.
