I have been in the US on my annual sales trip. I am from Africa, but I experienced the hottest weather that I have ever encountered in Dallas, Texas. The temperature was pretty much always above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and reached about 108 Degrees (42ºCelcius). What made the temperature more unbearable is the fact that it never even cooled down at night – the minimum seemed to drop to only 85 degrees at night (30 ºCelcius). It was a real shock to the system, as I have arrived from our winter in the Southern Hemisphere.
Despite the heat I had a great time. The wine market there is vibrant, and Eric (Baum – Cape Classics) and I got some good work done.
