So, are you then the valiant one opening the metro windows?

Only if there was hardly anyone else around... I didn't want to be the obvious foreigner who reaches over and opens the window on a crowded car.

So, is there any medical basis for this fear of drafts at *all* or is it some kind of strange culturally-induced mass paranoia? I am never traveling to France or Germany in the summer, is all I'm saying.

there is a restaurant chain here called "islands". i've been there 3 or 4 times, and each time it was so cold in there i couldn't enjoy my meal. (i don't like the food there much anyway, but still.)

the place has a hawaiian theme to it and the workers wear hawaiian shirts and baggy shorts. every time i've complained about it being so cold, they say that's the way people like it.
