  1. In 2009, in Guadix, by 3PM the last 7 weeks the temp. was 45/6C. Before we moved from the rain and wind of northern Galicia I checked the temps. for inland Andalucia and nowhere was there any info that suggested these kind of temps. Indeed for the journey to France 9in August 2009, no meteo suggested the actual temps. we faced on the journey. Which leads me to think that there is a definite policy of lying about summer temps. in Spain. Also I have never seen any actual figures for the elderly dying from dehydration and heat – and the bad news is, it’s going to get worse.
