    Background: As people throughout the northern hemisphere shiver in the clutches of winter, the south is experiencing some of the difficulties of summer.

    In the Argentine capital, Buenos Aires, the temperature is currently tipping the 38 degrees Centigrade (100 degrees Fahrenheit) mark, creating problems for the nine-million population.

    Humidity in Buenos Aires is high, and finding relief from the heat is especially difficult for office workers. While the municipal resorts along the River Plate teem with bikini-clad girls and near-naked children, the working man -- clad in jacket, collar and tie -- seeks refuge in the cool refreshment of streetside cafes.

    Fountains and ponds throughout the city are being utilised in many ways in the search to keep cool. Mothers allow their children to play under the flowing water, while the elderly townsfolk site on park benches in the shade.

    If the working man has to put up with the rigours of the humid summer, he, at least, can take this opportunity to study the advantages of the latest beach fashions sported by Buenos Aires' less inhIbited ladies. Most popular this year is the "tanga" -- a minuscule two-piece swimsuit concealing very little.
