"Iraq's government shuts down amid 120-degree temps - and no A/C"

CSM: "Even Iraqi government ministries can't keep air conditioning on amid a summer electricity crisis. With the start of Ramadan today, observant Muslims are facing 14 hours without water."

I have often wondered how some people can fast from sunrise to sunset in hot weather. You have to be healthy, and recognize if you need to break your fast. And why not take a drink of water? Even the poor have access to water.

PS: After posting I thought about fresh water availability throughout the world. See this list of water availability by country.
