And 新京报/The Beijing News confirms the impression I got when I stepped off the airport bus at Panjiayuan yesterday afternoon: I’d stepped into a blast furnace. Unfortunately, looking out the window it seems that yesterday’s lifting of the horrible, muggy soup of humidity that has smothered Beijing for so long was far too brief. Temperatures pushing 40 and ever-increasing humidity? I am sooooooooo looking forward to this afternoon’s walk down to the tea shop.
