As much as I love living in Beijing, there are a few things that really bother me. One is wind, the other is rain. I love wind and rain when I am in the states, I love the wind for sailing and rain is usually pleasant in Michigan, but in China the wind and rain just bring dirt and sand... I must have washed my car 3 time in the past 4 days. The weather report didn't say anything other than partly cloudy or else I would have held off on the washing. Anyway, here is the morning after I washed and waxed my car...

And post 2 for today! This past weekend was a holiday. We went on a day trip to hike in the mountains. My health app said I climbed 138 flights of stairs that day... Going out there and back it is always fun to drive in the twists and turns of the mountain roads just outside of Beijing. Fortunately there wasn't too much traffic and I could take the turns with some fun speeds. My wife expected me to take a picture with my car, so I had to share the photo she too here too. Now that the weather is getting better I hope to go on more road trips. 18 years in Beijing and there is still so much I haven't seen yet.

We've been having a lot of rain in Beijing. I parked my car in my usual spot outside the school where I work. Half way through the day my friend sent me a picture and said I should probably move my car...

The picture of the small river next to the fence is a 3 foot deep ditch that runs the whole length of the street. Fortunately I moved my car to dry land before it got any worse. And it did. There was a Mini Cooper that started floating away on the street shortly after I moved my car.

It sure did. The sky is a beautiful blue and the temps are perfect. I hope Shanghai is nice for you. October is always a good month to be in China!
