Unbelievable how much one can sweat here. The body armor really amplifies the heat's effect. When I take it off, the back of my uniform is soaked. Not just damp, but soaking wet. But, it's a clean sweat, just pure water seemingly.

I feel the sweat trickle down the inside of my legs. It soaks the tops of my socks and even my boots and their nylon exterior are damp. But, the sensation reminds me-as ever- that I am a fallible human, not a machine.

At least it dries fast.
