No, these are not the measures of an extremely fat (or inverse pear shape) woman!!

These was the humidity in Hefei respectively at 6, 7 and 8am today, not raining day, but very sunny!! The temperature at 8am was 28 degrees C: probably the first day this summer that the humidity hit us so strongly!

I realized that when waiting for the shuttle bus to work: usually the colleagues and me we scatter in front of the compund entrance. Today we all moved to the closest tree in order to have at least the head in the shadow!! A little refreshment that the body strongly asked for!!

The day turned out to be hot (a peak at 35C!), even if I spent it again mainly in clean room. And of course it rained a little in the afternoon, fast and sharp. Now it’s night and it is warmer than the previous nights. It’s true, summer is going to be tough! I am not sure I am tough enough for it!

..and I want to move to Hangzhou, one of the hottest cities in China, much more than Hefei!!! What would people do for Aikido! 😉

FUNNY THING OF THE DAY – On the way to the center by bus the road ran along a quite large area full of debris. I think there were some buildings there that had been taken down. No idea what they are going to build in place of those. But the funny thing was there were at least 5-6 people walking around with metal detectors looking for valuables! I wonder if they bought them on Taobao, the Chinese version of eBay, seriously the cheapest way to purchase anything! Unfortunately it’s all in Chinese only!
