Mad Dogs & Englishmen ; Bully Sun Ready to Pounce


With the clouds having vanished the Sun has become a despot. It has turned up the heat and waits to pounce upon unwary travelers. In this weather wear a hat and carry a bottle of water. Avoid the mid-day Sun unless you are a mad dog or an Englishman.

“Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun,
The Japanese don´t care to, the Chinese wouldn´t dare to,
Hindus and Argentines sleep firmly from twelve to one”

“In tropical climes there are certain times of day
When all the citizens retire to tear their clothes off and perspire.
It’s one of the rules that the greatest fools obey,
Because the sun is much too sultry
And one must avoid its ultry-violet ray.”–Noel Coward
