Words of the Day: Xia Tian (summer)

Posted: Saturday, July 24, 2010 By Ni Hao Books

The Words of the Day for today is 夏天, xià tiān (summer). Southern California is a very dry place, even when it rains, it mostly only drizzles. When I first arrived in San Diego, there was a forecast for storms, but the only thing that came down was just drizzles that damped the windshield of my the car. The summers in Guangzhou (in southern China) are always full of thunderstorms, which bring reliefs to the intense heat. I remember taking showers during the day just to cool off and wash off the sweat. Once I got out of the shower, the heat made me sweat so much instantly, that I just wanted to get back into the shower right away. The summers are definitely getting hotter and hotter there, probably with the pollution bringing the green house effect, keeping the city hot and humid. I do not recommend traveling to China in the summer months, especially to southern China.
