Just the other month, my husband and I went on a fun vacation to another country. When we checked into the hotel, we came to learn that our room did not have any climate control in it. When I was talking to the front desk people about it, they didn’t understand what I even meant when I said “HVAC system”.. Their english was not the best, but when they finally got the owner of the place, he explained that in their country they don’t often use HVAC systems. The best that they could do was provide us with an oscillating fan, complimentary of course. Well, I figured that was better than nothing and I figured we could deal with it, so I took the fan. It was not all that uncomfortable when we had the windows open and had that fan on all the way, creating a nice breeze. Of course it wasn’t nearly as good as some a/c, but I just made the best of it with my husband and we had a splendid time. Touring the area was interesting and we actually found a cab driver that had A/C in his car! We were more happy than we should have been. The cab did smell a little off, but who cares? It had a/c. We ended up paying the cab driver extra money to drive us around for the most of the day. We were a little hesitant to leave the comfort of the A/C when we were done touring the area, but we still had an excellent time regardless.
