[Yay, I can finally post after 7 days!]
Believe me, things can get much more humid here; we get one month of cold weather, and then the rest of the year is pretty much a hot humid weather, with some storms every three weeks (usually followed by a relieving colder days).
And, the sun is just hateable, and it keeps getting stronger every year; that's pretty much why I love the rain (along other deeper reason, which I'll explain later).
Oh, movies are great, have you ever seen "Un Chien Andalou", by Dalí and Buñuel or "Metropolis" by Fritz Lang, those two are simply masterpieces. Of course, Film Noir is great as well.
