Summer is already here in Spain and this one seems to be a hard one. Madrid, the capital city where I currently live and am from, is far away from the seaside and temperatures can be extreme from June to September (around 40º celsius!). We try to survive by drinking gazpacho (a delicious cold tomato soup) and eating sandia (watermelon).
Are you planning to come to Spain? Do you want to complain the "real Spanish way"?
4 Common Expressions to Complain About the Heat like a Spanish Native:
"Hace tanto calor que los pájaros se caen de los árboles."
- It's so hot that birds are falling from the trees.
"No se puede ni respirar."
- You can't even breathe.
"Cómo pega el Lorenzo."
- The sun is so strong (Lorenzo is a man's name used to refer to the sun in popular culture).
"Me estoy asando."
- I'm roasting.
But please, don't forget to smile and complain at the same time We Spaniards love doing both!
