One Word Photo: A Humid Auckland

A Humid Auckland-062

This week Jennifer from Jennifer Nichole Wells has asked us for our humid photos.  I did a bit of digging in my archives and found this photo of Auckland.

I grew up in Auckland.  The summers are very hot and humid.  When I trained and worked as a nurse we found it really hard.  We wore starched white uniforms.  We had to wear petticoats and tights/stockings.  If we didn’t we had to go home and put them on.  It was a nightmare working in the old hospitals with no air conditioning.  It was always a relief to get home and strip off.

This photo was taken in January 2007.  Hastings can get humid, but it still was a shock to feel the humidity again in Auckland. Coming out from the air conditioned shops into the fresh air the humidity would just hit you.  It was a relief to get back to Hastings.

  1. Hot and humid here, too, Raewyn. Thank goodness I don’t have to wear starched anything or petticoats. When I see what women used to wear, I wonder that they didn’t all die of heat stroke in the summer!
