Day 24: Rain
Today was the first day raining since we arrived. We woke up to the sound of drizzling water in the courtyard, and instantly felt the need to wear extra layers. Bundled up, we were half-way through the first pitching-in time when the day cleared. It was weird-- a bright and sunny day, but the constant pitter-patter of rain hitting the stone floors. Of course, this meant the perfect situation for a rainbow, something rarely seen in Shanghai if at all. As expected, we recieved a call from Mr. T calling us to the terrace. Encouraged by the thought of seeing a double rainbow, we leapt off the couch, slipped on our bound-to-get-wet shoes, and ran off while pulling a water-proof jacket on. When we arrived, the rainbow was difficult to see. However, for even the most fleeting moment, it was just barely visible. A patch of rainbow-y colors near the rooftops, and a large arc that disappeared into the clouds. With hopes (slightly) fulfilled, we trudged back to the work rooms. It's expected to be raining for the rest of the week (and last few days at Microcampus). Hopefully this isn't true, and the weather station is off by a couple days. Ending off on a nice day would be preferrable.
