It's all cold, Diab says.
Diab also says it is working to keep the apartment cool.
- In the morning I open all the windows to ventilate.
Then at 11 o'clock I close the blinds.
Air conditioning is on from 14:00 to 18:00.
And then from nine in the evening I open the windows.
Taking a shower 2-3 times a day also helps.
In addition, children are taken to the pool and sea to swim and cool off in the morning and after the worst heat in the afternoon.

45 degrees is just nothing to me.

For example, at the beginning of next week, daytime temperatures in Karai, northern Iran, could be as high as 38 degrees, and even at night, well above 20 degrees.
According to Morad, the locals are fleeing the heat and sun indoors.
- When it's too hot here, people prefer to go out at night, so the shops are open until two or three in the morning.
According to Morad, the feeling is also made much easier by drinking sweet lemon juice and other sweet drinks.
- We should not use plastic man-made fibers such as polyester, Moradi suggests.
- When it comes to sleeping, everyone has an air conditioning system.
Otherwise, the heat cannot last for a minute.
Reza Moradi says she's used to the heat.
However, the harshest heat is not outside in the sun but inside in the cool.

- Hot weather is common in us.
So that's normal for me.
The temperature does not affect my daily life - what I always do, says Ruslan Jandiev.
According to Jandiev, however, helping to withstand the heat is that there is air conditioning at work and at home the trees provide shade and the windows always stay open.
- Because I cycle, I feel the fluid-electrolyte balance and I take care of it in everyday life, especially when it is hot.
My biggest instruction for people, and especially for the elderly, is that they take care of fluid-electrolyte balance, Jandiev suggests.
- But my more wonderful advice is to use the bike in hot weather, so you don't need air conditioning but you ride in fresh air and the soft wind also cools well.
Ruslan Jandiev likes cycling even on a hot day, because then the airflow also cools down.
