Beijing In The Spring (Or Enhanced Greenhouse Effected Winter)
As you may have read from earlier posts, several weeks ago, we celebrated the Chinese New Year - also known as the Spring Festival. This is usually the time when real spring weather emerges. But here, I have seen no such thing - not even a hint. I know temperatures all over the world have gone beyond "unusual," but this season in Beijing is not just strange, it's frustrating as hell. With major daily fluctuations and no visible end in sight to the alternating snow and slush, one must wonder how much more Mother Nature is going to dish out before she reins it all in and allows spring sunshine to emerge.

The first thing that came to mind was "global warming," which I was soon to learn was not exactly the right term. In an attempt to research the topic further, I came across this article. JunkScience is a fantastic and reputable site and, after reading the way they present the facts, I wanted to pass it along to all of you:

Have fun and be knowledgeable!

THE WILD WILD EAST: Everything you never knew you didn't know about life on the other side.
In China, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups. The Chinese, who call this land "home," and the expats who migrate here. My name is Rachel. I am an expat. These are my stories.

This is a satirical site intended for the entertainment of an online audience. None of the features on this site are real (except in my own distorted view of reality), nor are they intended to harm the subjects mentioned. This site uses fictional names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized or when I choose to use this site as a platform for someone's public humiliation (usually my own). Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental (or purposeful, but with good reason).

Despite the trivial nature of my random daily (sometimes weekly) musings, I hope you enjoy your stay at my site. If there is anything you need, don't hesitate to ring up the concierge, because I just travel in style like that. Have a pleasant stay and I hope that you will come see us again soon!
