it has been another gloriously foggy day in beijing!

i love the fog here… rolling in crisp, cool, and clean from the ocean. sometimes, it is so thick that it clings to my arms, forming little droplets.

it reminds me in so many ways of the time i spent in edinburugh nigh on 25 years ago.

this is such a wondrous time of the year!

little voice robs?
me hmmmmmmmh?
little voice you do know that beijing isn’t on the ocean, right?
me well….
little voice and, that it isn’t fog you walked through on the way to work.
me but…
little voice also, that those little droplets you mentioned are, in fact, sweat.
me fine… well, at least i’ll always have edinburugh

the title of this entry makes reference to A Foggy Day (In London Town).

Here’s a link to a version done by Hazel Scott, Charlie Mingus, and Rudy Nichols during a 1955 televised pitch for the March of Dimes fight against Polio.

Robs’ Blog – A Wonderful Winter Day

In Spaceballs, there’s this wonderful scene involving Mega Maid, a giant Statue of Liberty themed robot, who wields a vacuum cleaner in an attempt to suck-off Planet Druidia’s atmosphere.

Well, it seems like she visited Beijing last night.

The fog is gone, leaving a wonderfully brilliant blue sky. What a drastic and welcomed change from the cotton-ball days of the past week.

I do so hope this weather continues.
