Winter Blast

These last two days have been freezing cold in Hong Kong, dipping to nine degrees. Before you think that's hardly horrific living conditions, bear in mind we don't have central heating -- any kind of heating really -- and insulation is non existent.
People here have been complaining about the cold and hope the winter spell will end soon. But the upshot is that the smog -- oops -- "fog" -- has disappeared due to rain two days ago and now the skyline seems pretty much in focus.
While it's been cold for me too, I am just glad I'm not back in Beijing where it really is cold! Just wish the office had some heat, as many of us are working in our winter coats...
