I grew up in a house that had no air conditioning. My mother had a fan in several rooms that blew in both directions. Depending on where the sun was, she turned the fans on intake or exhaust to circulate air throughout. She also explained to us kids the different spots on our bodies where cool water on them would instantly cool you down. I later researched and discovered they are called “cooling points” where you can feel your pulse. Those spots include your wrists, inner elbow, behind your knees, and ankles. Others include your forehead, temples and just in front of your ears.
