Jerusalem Heat II

Check out today’s high temp (and compare it to the forecast temperature for today in my last post):

Many apartments in Jerusalem, especially those lived in by students, do not have air-conditioning.  In the States, you can go to your local Home Depot and pick up a 7000 BTU window unit for your bedroom for $100 or thereabouts.  Here, a 7000 BTU unit costs upwards of $500, not including an installation fee of $75-$100 which entails drilling through walls; something that not all landlords approve of in lease agreements.  Aging window units can be seen hanging precariously from some older apartments but are no longer manufactured or imported.
