Spring in Wuhan

We're having a beautiful spring here in Wuhan—which is unusual, according to my students.  Most years it goes from chilly, damp winter to meltingly hot summer almost overnight.  This year, though, it thankfully has been in the 60s or 70s more days than not for the past month, and not even quite as much rain as usual.  Today is the first day it's really felt hot at all—I haven't seen the weather report, but it feels like it's probably in the low 80s. I stayed in nearly all day yesterday  cleaning, so I decided I really ought to get outside while I can before the Wuhanese summer (they don't call this city "one of the three furnaces of China" for nothing) sets in. I was going to just take a walk after lunch, but then I thought—I have a laptop for a reason. So, here I am—sitting on a park bench by the south lake, across the road from my campus.  Such a pleasant day to sit in the shade.  Also, hopefully I will get more work done out here where I have my laptop but not the internet. 

As I was leaving, I saw a couple getting their wedding pictures made near the lake, so I got a couple of stalker zoom pretty. :)
