I generally do not post pictures of myself on this blog, but I will make an exception this time around in order to illustrate what the weather in Beijing has been like recently. It is not often that I have to wear all the accoutrements featured in the poor webcam shot below, not least because it means a lot of keeping track of your stuff when you’re inside extremely greenhouse-effected study rooms on campus, but also because I do not like to show everybody my World Domination Look (TM) before I really need to.
It is a combination of severe smog, stubborn, penetrative sunlight, and wind-chill.
Note: Podcast in editing right now! Will be ready soon, please bear with.
