Argentina: thermal sensation, money issues, Salsa
Argentina: day 4
Ufffff…..It’s so cold today.

in the morning. I’ve noticed that, in channel 26, the bottom of the
screen shows 3 pieces of informations: the current time, thermal
sensation and temperature. Thermal sensation? Let me explain it:
Thermal sensation is the temperature that you feel. So, for instance,
it’s 7ºC outside but you will sense it as if it’s 6,05ºC.

tomorrow it’s the 1st day of Argentinian tango classes. I’m going to
have 4 to 6 hours of classes!! I’m sure it’s going to be awesome!
