I have been speaking quite a bit about the temperature and humidity this summer in Dubai, so here is another fun thing I have been obsessing over this week: the UV index.
As a dark skinned Indian, who had never been worried as a kid about tan or the sun protection (I know I was young and stupid) I had my first experience on sunburns this week. All thanks to walking from the gym to parking lot which hardly took 2 to 3 minutes, and despite wearing a lame sunscreen.
While I spend my weekend grumbling, take look at the UV index for Dubai. Also send me some common sense, if you have aplenty.
What I read this week
I am currently reading The Little Teashop in Tokyo by Julie Caplin with a couple of my friends. And alternating it with Americanah by by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
What I watched this week
I am re-watching Modern Family on Netflix currently and I am loving every episode of it.
I just started Good Omens on Prime and it seems intriguing. Should I read the book before I watch it?
