    I had a rooster living directly outside my window for about 6 months. Every morning at precisely 6:00a.m. it began it’s “cockadoodledoo”. It was a perfect alarm clock, except that I didn’t need to get up until 7, and not every day at that. Mind you, I was living inside a school, not on a farm. Anyhow we endured this up until Chinese New Year, at which time the noise mysteriously stopped…we think the neighbors finally cooked him up for New Year’s dinner.

    Was in Shanghai last week and Beijing a week earlier. Beijing was as hot in May as Washington DC is in August. Shanghai’s temperatures varied.

    I’m “hoping” to get to experience a real Shanghai and Suzhou summer this time. I’m going to China together with my husband and my parents this coming Sunday! My parents only stay for about 1 week, but my husband and I are staying until early July. Last year I went to Suzhou and Beijing in May and even though the temperature hit well over 30 degrees C, I found it very comfortable and I only needed to use the airconditioner at night.
    25 degrees C here in Scandinavia feels way worse, and add no airconditioner to that 😉 I’ve had about 30 degrees C in my bedroom at night, in Sweden, and that was just next to a wide open window!
