Last week temperatures dipped to an all time low, at -15ºC and of course no taxis are ever in sight when you need them by night. All you can really do is muster up the most vivid memories of your entire lifetime of campfires you’ve experienced and think warm while the howling wind threatens to blow you away. Beijing winters are harsh!
I’m going to make an attempt at ice-bicycling soon on the lake at houhai. Check out these ice swimmers I saw the other day.
