For this story to make sense, you need a little background information. In Germany, homes don't have air conditioning. Neither do a lot of stores and restraunts. This is not a big deal because usually there are only a few days in August that get really hot. A few fans is really all you need most of the summer. This is our third year in Germany and it's HOT! It's been swelteringly hot for about a week and a half. We've been closing the blinds and relying heavily on the fans and kiddie pool to beat the heat. A few days ago, we were in the car and I'd turned on the AC to cool us off.
Maura: This is nice, Mommy. They should make these for houses, too.
