It was far too hot to venture outside – very unseasonably hot temperatures for the time of year. There was no shade as illegal logging had removed most of the trees and the wildfires had taken care of the rest

They couldn’t go on a sightseeing trip as the mass flooding and an unseasonal hurricane had decimated the tourist industry, left people homeless and many people were missing.

They couldn’t even go down to the hotel reception because of the noise from the climate activists demonstrating outside the hotel
