St. Patrick’s Day Snow in Beijing 2012

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Beijing. You’re supposed to dye the waters green, not layer the city in three-five inches of impenetrable snow.

In the hutongs near Nanluoguxiang we got around 3-5 inches of light, fluffy snow.

My hog, covered in Beijing’s first snow of the year, on March 17th, 2012.

Our little hutong alleyway as the giant snowflakes fall. 2am.

And finally, the classic shot of the streetlight in the snow.

A friend of ours took these side-by-side pics from her highrise in downtown Beijing. 1:30am.

    I do not feel envious of that snow. Reminds me of my days in Korea…far too cold in the winter.

    The chinese language test is not easy at all. Mostly because of the emphasis on the listening section, and the several thousands of words we must learn. Everyone who tries to learn Chinese needs plenty of encouragement.
