My hammock

By | 2008-06-30

It’s summer already, and that means it’s hot, really hot. I read somewhere that when the air temperature is above 27ºC, your head can’t evacuate enough heat, and you have various related problems (can’t sleep, headaches, etc).

My siesta hammockFor me, this is my second 2008 summer. I spent the first one in Costa Rica, in March. It was hot, but I enjoyed napping on a hammock near the beach… that was nice. The curious thing is that some days ago I saw a hammock in a shop window near home, just for 12 euros!

But the problem was: how can I hold it? actually, “where and how”? If I install some kind of hooks in the walls, I’m sure I will destroy some part of the walls when I jump into the hammock. So I decided to invent a way to hold it steadily, without destroying the house’s walls. And today I found it: I bought a rope, and I tied one side to the balcony’s railing and the other side to a wood crossed in the outside of my door. Then I grabbed the hammock to the tense rope with 2 carabiners. And it works!

Happy summer siestas!
