I went to Orlando in 2004 and rented a vacation
home for the whole month of january, hey they are pretty cheap
compared to a motel. Anyway on the coldest day at Universal Studios all the S. American tourists were in down filled jackets, caps and gloves, my whole family
was wearing just cotton and shortsleaves, it was only 45F. Thats a decently cool day but doesn't bother us at all.
And then we went to Blizzard beach a Disney waterpark, high temp of the day was about 65F, the place was nearly deserted and again we had a blast!
But then when I was at Epcot on an earlier visit back in december of 2001 and it was around 75 it made me sick, I had to literally hide out at this one place there that had this ice mock up room, made me totally at home.
And the weirdest thing we ever saw was a show at Sea World about the Antarctic I think, they had this one room all set up with cold weather gear
, shelves of stuff you keep for equipment
like synthetic oil
, Carhart clothes, mickey mouse boots (I absolutely hate those! They are military double thick cold weather boots) and basically it was identical to our pantry up here in Alaska
. Really weird and kind of sobering that what we have acclimated ourselves to most people think of as inhumanly inhospitable.
But there are caveats with living in an Arctic climate most of the year, most everybody up here is white rednecks and non conformists, survivors that hate being in close contact in an urban environment
, yes we a city or two and yes they are more diverse in ethnic differences, I don't count the natives, they are more white than Indian or Asiatic, heck my grandaughter is half native. I think her dad is Inipuit a he lives down on the Aleutians.
