Back in China and normal life has resumed. The dragon flies have turned up in full force and they are clearly loving the city’s humid heat. Again coming from the desert in the middle of summer (it has been a year!), I needed some adjusting. Luckily once you start sweating, the heat becomes bearable and in fairness that does not take too long (if you haven’t fainted in the meantime).
Our last week in California was hot but dry, so much more enjoyable. We actually drove through Peanut, CA on our travels but unfortunately they did not have the funds to purchase a road sign so we kind of missed it.
What we certainly did not miss were these giant things…
We did almost miss this little guy but he decided to pose for a picture in the end.
My Chinese has deteriorated dramatically over the last three weeks so I better get my Putonghua hat back on before it will evaporate completely.
