Welcome to Jahra, Kuwait – the city with the hottest ever recorded temperature on earth!

I went to Kuwait a few months ago, on the exact hottest day of the year, so I could see what life is like in the brutal heat!! How on earth can people survive and do their daily activities when it’s 55 degrees Celsius, or 140 degrees Fahrenheit outside? How can they eat? Sleep? Pray? Enjoy life?

I met up with my local friend, Sulaiman, and together we went on an adventure of a lifetime, from the urban city life to deep inside the desert on the Saudi border.

This is my favorite video of the year so far, and I hope you enjoy!!

Because the car slanted but you can see That it's already cooking after 20 Seconds [Music] Thank you Yeah That is a cooked egg If you want it well done more 30 seconds That's it visiting faiso's Oasis was a Really cool experience but what was even More impressive was his friend's Ambition to literally create a Sustainable and eco-friendly City in the Kuwaiti desert and yes he works in the Middle of summer So this is an attempt to go for Self-sufficiency we're designing this And implementing this to be able to rely On itself for water energy as well as For food sources so for example we're Using the plantation or a different Kinds of plants to establish the system To hold more water reducing the seepage Of heat from underneath and increasing The surface area or the depth of the Wall to reduce the delay of heat Transfer from the exterior to the Interior for our climate we have to Create thick months 10 to 15 centimeters Because of this a breaking down of the Organic matter all of this have Converted into this good topsoil usually In added zone or in our hot dry climate We don't support having exposed ponds

But here we haven't exposed pond and There is no cooling of any kind in this System but still you see the water level Is good these are guppies Yeah and there are different uh maybe The dragonflies have finished their Shift but they just left see the koi Over there or the Goldfish over there And then the big one where is it usually Yeah so we don't go on and haphazardly Start establishing an aquatic system Without creating this microclimate half Shade and half sun and create these kind Of ecosystem it's amazing how you can Make life in such hot weather with this As the example to show that you could Create a system without requiring Significant energy input and in this Kind of a hot climate with turtles Different fish as well as different Microorganisms with with also spiders in Different living I'm flying the Drone Right now and it says temperature Temperature iPhone needs to cool down Before you can use it Thankfully the connection is still going Dude it says I freaked out for a second Because I thought it stopped working Look temperature too hot but it came Back damn dude they came back we're good I've come to the realization that it's Harder to shoot videos in extreme heat Than extreme cold because in Yakuza my Camera worked just fine we had no

Problems only frosting But in the extreme heat the iPhone and The Sony and the GoPro did just stopped Working sometimes the Drone could lose Connection yeah it happens most of the Times the Drone just Stopped like if you're using your phone To fly the Drone the phone just stops And the Drone is lost it's middle of the Day right now I'm gonna do a little personal challenge To see if I can stay outside for one Hour without getting shelter Without having water see if I can do it I'm not kidding you guys it is really That hot outside It's just like Makes me almost makes you want to puke Like uncomforting dizzy it's not only The heat coming down it's also bouncing Off from the ground you know put me in Cold weather any day but he really gets Me actually I want to know your guys's Thoughts comment below what could you Send extreme cold or extreme heat which One do you prefer I'm really curious to Know This is challenging Just trying to stay outside for more Than like 30 minutes at a time is Brutal which is why kawitis mostly stay Inside Let me check the weather here see what The actual degrees is
