Зарубились со старшеньким, какое самое жаркое место на земле. Мне почему-то казалось, что Триполи. Я же не мог это придумать? Это вообще единственный контекст, в кoтором я знаю слово "триполи". И вот, что я вижу.

The former capital of the Jafara district, 25 miles south of Tripoli, used to claim the title of hottest place on earth – in 1922 the temperature was recorded as a sweltering 58 degrees. However, it was stripped of its title in 2012 when meteorologists declared this invalid due to a number of factors, including the fact that the person who recorded it was inexperienced. However, the town still regularly experiences temperatures of over 48 degrees in midsummer.
