Beginning of Summer

Just another sunny day here in Yichang. No matter what the weather, you will find someone carrying an umbrella.
As much as we, Americans, love our healthy glow of tans, the Chinese are big fans of being "white." Actually, they are probably even more obsessed. Even high end companies such as Clinque sell whitening creams.
As I walk around the city (sans sunbrella), praying for the summer heat to already go away, I only hope that I can get some color on my skin before I return to the land of self-tanners, tanning beds, lying out, and general darkness.

Summer is here!
