The Romance of (Acid) Rain, Lu Wan District

I’m from Washington State, which is known primarily for it’s constant drizzle, but Shanghai recently been pouring non-stop and I don’t know how much more I can take… Rain never really bothered me before until I realized just how much ish there is in Chinese rain, but if you want to look at the cup half full then at least you can see Shanghai’s acid drops as an excuse to stay indoors or cuddle up close with someone under the inadequate protection of an umbrella (that is if you MUST go outside). There’s no romanticizing that slight burning sensation you get when you get wet in Shanghai, but it looks like this couple can weather anything as long as they weather it together.
