Have you ever been to a very hot dry place? My best friend just spent eight
months in Senegal, where the climate was absolutely dry and daytime
temperatures regularly hit 120 degrees fahrenheit. I asked her whether she
was always drenched in sweat, and she said no. The perspiration always
evaporated very quickly in the dry heat.
