Day 192: Sunshine

You see more umbrellas in Beijing on a sunny day than you do on a rainy day.

Summer in Beijing: sunny, hot and humid. Wednesday was cloudy and in the 80’s (F), but Thursday and Friday has brought blues sky and abundant sunshine, raising the temperature into the mid-90’s (I have no idea what the humidity is, but suffice it to say the air is thick and sticky). Sunny days bring out umbrella vendors like a thunderstorm in NYC, but instead of small, black, collapsible rain umbrellas, the ones sold here are mostly bright and frilly parasols (or small, rainbow umbrella hats)
