28 photos that anyone who lives in a hot country will understand

Most of us live in countries where we enjoy scorching summers, but we often forget that some parts of the world are baking hot all-year-round. To give you some idea of what 'baking hot' means, the Guinness Book of World Records states the highest air temperature ever recorded on Earth is a sweltering 133°F! In other words, hot enough to fry an egg (and us!!!).

In honor of those of you who can't live without air-conditioning, here are 30 photos that anyone who lives in a tropical country will understand!
