As Fall slowly fades away, I’m preparing for November 15th, when central heating for Beijing finally turns on. Pollution for the next 3 months is worth a warm winter, right? Ironic that as I was posting this I received a notification from my AQI app warning me of ‘heavy pollution’. GOOD TIMES BEIJING! Keep 'em coming…

Beijing, China. Blue skies are rare

Rained for a bit this afternoon and lo and behold, a rainbow. The streets were filled with people taking pictures, so here is a collection of pictures I took as well as stole from social media

Had lunch on top of an apartment building today

Those tuk-tuk things are oblivious to everyone else on the road

Good morning from Shuangjing, Beijing, China!

Some days are clearly better than others

The Color Run was on Line 14, at the Beijing Garden Expo, which was super nice

Although the sun wasn’t out, it was really hot, like humid hot. By now, I’m used to talking about scenery or the weather with the added phrase, “Despite the smog”.

The gardener was probably the most confused person at the race. Wondering why all these crazy people were running in the heat and looking like Robin Williams after trying to fly from ‘Hook’. (Remember the colored goo he lands in? Solid reference)
