Hot! Hot! Hot!
The weather in the town of Fatima is usually very warm and humid in the months of August and September. I remember one visit in early September. I was ready for the heat, I thought. This was different. I arrived in a heat wave and the temperature was 43 - 44 degrees C. That's about 110 - 112 degrees F.!!!!! I felt like I was melting in the heat and humidity. It was difficult to breathe. I welcomed the shade of some trees at the Sanctuary. My energy level ( and everyone else's) was nil. I was a very happy pilgrim when it was time to go indoors for lunch in a wonderfully cool restaurant in town that was right across from the Basilica. While sitting at my table eating my lunch, I looked out the window and noticed the temperature board. I took the picture because I thought no one at home would believe that it was really that hot. for restaurant listings.
