Golden Rainy Weekz, Lu Wan District
So I think it’s been like monsoon season or something in Shanghai cause we have been getting hit HARD… like to the point where we can barely drive or ride in this ish cause there are full-on flash floods.
Look at how miserable this little boy looks! Well guess what little boy: EVERYONE ELSE IS MISERABLE TOO. We’ve all had to slosh around the streets a few times this season, and the ish that comes off the streets when it rains here thankfully(?) taints the water enough that you can’t see what you’re walking around in.
It’s like Shanghai is so dirty that Mother Nature didn’t even want to bother with giving us a shower and just tried to drown us instead.
But no, seriously, we just went through a multi-day typhoon extravaganza and it was weirdly during China’s Golden Week. I think that means that the government lost control of the weather (no, seriously, they really think they can control the weather and have an impressive record of abnormally nice weather during public holidays) and now we are all screwed because our days off will probably be rainier than they would have been if we had just let Mother Nature be.
Sorry to be such a Debby Downer but it’s seriously been slightly apocalyptic this season and I can’t imagine it will get better with more interference by Big Chinese Brother… But at least the rain has stopped for now.
