There are still some troglodytes (trogdolytes?  Never remember which is the 
correct term...) in North Africa....  Get below the surface a few feet and 
the temperature MAJORLY moderates.

That's a very good list.

My dad was born in 1926 and grew up in Riverside, CA, which is just as
hot and dry as the Central Valley in the summer.  No A/C back then!
His parents, who were also born and raised in the area, did appreciate
their A/C when they were older.

The best houses for weather like that are thick-walled adobes, but few
exist anymore.
