I have been to Luxor in January and it was pretty darn hot.

OK, so it seems it may be really a reason ;)

Also the novices got chairs and they didn't. So not fair :P

Heat rises.  Think about it.
Lol!

How do I know this, you ask? 

I recall being in a very hot building in Greece years back, with a nice marble floor.  I touched it, and it felt ice cold.  After that, any time I got uncomfortably hot, all I had to do was get some 'floor time'...

with a marble floor, that is some extra coolness there. I know the feeling.

The newly released Christians of Al-Qaryaten who were liberated from their kidnappers only yesterday; and their families reunited at the Syriac Orthodox Patriarchate in Bab Touma, Damascus.  They were released yesterday after about 6 months of their abduction.
