Apparently, our trip spanned the seasons. When we left Guangzhou, it was cool and rainy (temperature in the low 50s). There was a bone-chilling dampness. When we arrived in Xiamen last weekend, the weather was clearly on the upswing, with warmth, intermittent blue skies, and increasing dryness. Temperatures the last 2 days were perfectly balmy. We arrived in Guangzhou to heat, 86 degrees! That hot weather is supposed to continue for the next week.

So, imagine all the stone -tiled and cinder-block buildings thoroughly chilled, and then temperature skyrockets 35 degrees – every surface is covered with condensation.

In Vermont the changing of the seasons is marked by a few mucky weeks known as “mud season.” Here in Guangzhou, the transition is more aptly called “mold season.”
