A Walk in SWEATral Park

Central Park is stunning.

And huge.

We walked 2 hours.

Over 4 miles.

And maybe we hit about 1/8 of it.

It was August.

It was 90 degrees.

Plus 90% humidity.

At one point I felt like the next step would be death.

My sweat did not glisten any longer, it reflected my last moments of life.
 Just two more blocks.

My husband is a funny man.

I was not amused.

I made it through that day.

Barely.

How do people live in humidity.  Please explain it to this California girl.

    That's the only kind of heat I know. But being "only" 90 degrees would feel like I was living in an outdoor air conditioner! It's usually closer to 100-105 here. With 90% humidity. Ahhh....welcome to East Texas! :)

    i live in nc and it does get very humid here in the summer. when it gets really bad, we crank up the air and drink a lot of fluids. humidity is not my friend. it is the reason that i love fall! oh, and i didnt know central park was so big!

    Water will help but I would not even go take a walk in 90 degree weather lol

    Every time I go to NYC, it is a lot of walking! And it always seems like it is reeeally cold and windy, or it's just too hot! Tough to find a happy medium.
