The scene in which Clint asks Silvanito about Marisol, Silvanito inquires why Clint isn't sleeping.
It's broad daylight outside! Why would he need to be asleep?

Don't remember the scene but in the summer months the sun gets out even before 5 in the morning, and goes down around 9:30 in the evening.

Yeah, siesta probably covers it.

"You people" have no idea what it's like out here in the West.  We've been 114F in the shade the last two weeks (but there isn't any shade).  During our 10pm news, the temperature outside is still like 104F, and 4am lows are 95F.  Last night 7:30pm it was damn hot as I walked out to go swimming with Mrs. Cusser.  So you bet I take siestas, waking up when it's that bright at 5:15am (yes, we have plenty of drapes and shades, but the animals don't care).  Even the garage gets up to 130F.  A 14-year-old from Alaska just died from the heat hiking in a city park, his family only took a liter of water each, recommended is 1 gallon an hour.

I know it's pretty hot down there but from what I know it's a different type of heat than let's say in Indochina or some similar place with high humidity. A lot of people I know said it is somewhat easier to bare. But then again if the temperature gets abnormally high there's no way to escape it, so I hear you.

Though pretty much the big old European cities are a noteworthy competition; when the heat gets up and the old sewage system starts getting heard, the narrow old alleys filled to the top with nervous enthusiastic tourists, when the sun starts cooking the centuries old smog daubed on the facades of the houses, and the streets are jammed with cars... If you ever got trapped in there you know that hell can't be much worse.

Nobody dies from the heat 100 yards from the road there...

I always assumed that.  But, a siesta makes just as much sense.   Smiley

I went to Las Vegas in the summer once.  Unbearable.  Even at night it was boiling on the strip.

I went to Vegas myself as well as several other places "out west" and found it to be hot but not unbearable.
There is hardly any humidity.

But Death Valley... man, that was a whole other animal.
You couldn't even open your eyes because the wind would push the heat into them and make your eyes water.

Yeah, humidity is a big factor as well. Here in New York, it never gets that hot in summer but the humidity is so high it feels much hotter than it is. And with all that moisture in the air it just becomes muggy.

Yes, humidity is a bitch. Last weekend we were cleaning out our garage/storage rooms and it was at least 90 on Saturday (slightly cooler on Sunday) and that was decidedly awful. At least with dry heat you don't sweat like a hog.
