How do I cope with life without an air conditioner?

I have no idea what I am going to do without a central air conditioner.

I have never had to live without a central air conditioner before, but now, I am being forced into a situation in which I cannot have a central air conditioner.

I grew up in the United States. I am pretty sure that nearly everyone in the United States has some kind of air conditioner. It might not be a central air conditioner, but there are still window air conditioners that most people can afford. My parents were lucky enough to have really good jobs, so we always had a central air conditioner. However, I recently decided to volunteer for a few years overseas, and I have been preparing for this trip for a while. I had to raise a lot of money to go on this trip, and it was very hard to do that. I also had to learn some of the languages and get a bunch of vaccines. When I got here, I thought that I was in heaven. I had been waiting for this moment for a long time, and my dream was finally coming true. However, one thing that I didn’t prepare for was the lack of air conditioning. I am living in a very poor country, and nobody in the community has an air conditioner. While we probably could find an air conditioner, the organization that I work for believes that it is best to live like the natives in the area. This means that I have no air conditioner. The climate here is super humid and warm, and it has been terrible.
