Blue skies are one thing, but blue with white -- as in the delicately formed, candid, elucidating clouds... now that's a sight to see. And when it comes to days like yesterday, well, I haven't seen one of those in Beijing for a long, long time.
This came after two nights of raining -- only during the nights, mind you, very little during the day, leading me to suspect the cloud seeders are at it again. And in case you're wondering, yes, I do believe in cloud seeding now, indubitably. No way nature just happened to smile down on Beijing out of the blue.
