RedYawning suddenly came back online. I can’t really figure out why but I’m not complaining.
It’s halfway thru August and the weather keeps getting hotter in Shanghai. It looks like it’ll abate soon but the heat index today was 105F and yesterday was the hottest day of the year (in terms of the raw heat) at 38.2C. Yikes. In the spirit of summer I also decided a while back to try to get more active so I’ve been doing yoga twice a week, playing squash once a week and hitting the gym once or twice a week. It’s acutally worked out quite well and I’ve been at it for a few months now. There’s a small but fantastic yoga studio named Y+ in the French Concession (Fuxing Xilu at Huashan Lu) with good teachers, good students and an awesome cafe in the same building. I’ve been spending a lot of time at Ginger, given the free wifi, good sandwiches plus a decent staff (a rare find).
Also in the month of August I’ve managed to lose my mobile phone, a RAZR V3 by leaving it in a taxi and lose my wallet this weekend by who-knows-what method. I just can’t seem to find it. Thankfully no important documents where in there, just some cash and a bunch of local bank cards/etc. Outside of that, my family and my high school friends are coming by in September I’ll have lot of visitors soon enough.
