Summer has arrived in Beijing. Big-time, with high temperatures and high humidity and high heat indexes and layers and layers of smog! It will pretty much be like this for the next three months. Last night a friend and I attended a concert at a local church. It was so hot inside the sanctuary that my eyeballs were sweating. No fooling. It’s one of the sure signs that it is summer in Beijing–when your eyeballs sweat.
Another sure sign that it’s summer in Beijing is this—the men in a restaurant are shirtless and the women are wearing pajamas. Again, no fooling!
