Indeed! Especially in the summers. It can get as high as 40 degrees Centigrade. In the winters though it can be quite cool and temperate.

I do wish they'd consider centralized air conditioning - that should be more environmental, no?

dunno how these things work. perhaps people have different temperature tolerance. they have decentralized air on in the "west," so why not in the dessert? environmental? who gives a hoot? don't the saudis have oodles of oil? don't they have oodles of money?
