I have now lived in the tropics for 35 ears and this ear is truly a stinker where the humidit has been concerned!!! Most other hears I have not been so bothered by it! 43 and Dry on Melbourne was so much easier to bear from what I remember!! Or is this simply wishful thinking as I get older?!!! Actually,my air cons work a real treat and I do cope well here,so it cannot be all that bad after all!!!
Surely it has to be hot. While the dry heat is unpleasant, you do get a break when you move in to airconditioned cars or shops or houses ..... but with humidity, there is no such luck - you just sweat forever
My experience of high humidity is that it tends to be accompanied by high temperatures as well. I don't mind humidity to be honest and I love rain forests and for those to be possible you need lots of rain which means high humidity.
Right now, it's so cold here that frankly ANY version of hot would be welcome!
I love to have a garden and have never lived in a hot dry climate. I imagine it would be hard on the plants. For that reason I prefer the more humid option. Personally I find the hotter drier climate more comfortable.
