Freezing in Beijing

Last weekend brought with it a change in weather for Beijing – on Saturday it rained all day then overnight it snowed bringing with it white rooftops and freezing cold conditions in the morning. When I say freezing I don’t just mean colder than usual, I mean sub-zero frost-bitten fingers cold (around -8°C)!!




Looks a bit grim and in fact was a bit grim! A good day to stay indoors you’d imagine? Not for yours truly – stay tuned for how I nearly froze to death in the name of culture and foolhardiness!
