April is the kindest month

T.S. Eliot claimed that April was the cruelest month, but as I watch the façades of the Belgrade buildings I realise that I—being a very heat-sensitive person—was lucky to be here during spring. On the houses here, air conditioning units are clinging like the many breasts on the chest of Artemis.

Aircondition units everywhere, making life in Belgrade possible during the summer heat when the temperature sometimes reaches 35–40 degrees.
