"And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow."
Gilbert K. Chesterton

Personally, I dislike the rain and all this gloom. This is how the weather is in Shanghai and it's surprising that I'm still surviving. It's been raining continuously over the last four days here, and there has been a record of the last 4 weekends being rainy weekends. When you have so much rain all around things inevitably seem gloomier than they are.

Nine out of ten people who I have spoken to, about London, complain about London's weather and say that the only reason why they would leave a fantastic city like London is the rain.

Well in Shanghai I have two reasons: the internet and banks, the latter not affecting me so much really but yet it could be painful. The internet, on the other hand, especially over the last four months since Google was blocked here has been a nightmare. Where earlier we used a VPN ocassionally nowadays it's impossible to browse without using it. This is very much in lines with the Chinese government's policy to put a control on the two most important things: information and money!
