IHCWAY英会話講師アーロンの思い 6

秋のはじまり?
東京の夏は、耐えられないほど暑く、湿度が高い。ハワイという、年中温暖で暑い国の出身なのに、なぜこの暑さは耐えられないのかと、たくさんの人が私に尋ねる。私は暑さが気になるのではない、この湿度が耐えられないのだ。東京の夏の日中(と夜)は、水の爽快さを感じられるプールの代わりに息苦しい暑いプールの中で泳いでいるようだ。この湿気は、暑さを拡張させ、日陰に座っていても汗をかくぐらいだ。
A Start to Autumn?

Summer in Tokyo feels unbearably hot and humid. Many people ask me why I can’t stand the heat since I’m from Hawaii, a place where the weather is warm to hot all year round. My answer to such questions is that the heat itself does not bother me; it’s the humidity that I can’t handle. Tokyo summer days (and nights) feel like walking through a swimming pool, but with the cool relief of the water replaced by a suffocating heat. The humidity only amplifies the heat, making me sweat even when sitting in the shade.
