I guess this is the most uncomfortable summer I’ve had in Beijing since I came here. Though I thought I’d been used to the heat, humidity and sultriness, I find they’ve been testing my stamina these days.  It seems that sultry days are much longer this summer and you can in no way get away from being smothered in such muggy weather.  Sweat streaming down your back, you seem to have been steamed in a sauna room and can hardly catch your breath, no matter you like it or not.

With the growing temperature and sultriness, more and more Bangyes can be found in some public venues. The following are some pictures I ‘ve collected online and hope there will be no infringement of  copyrights. 

Bangyes, or bare-breast guys, used to be a typical scene in Beijing, or even all over China.  Then the local governments  made their endeavor to advocate dressing properly in public, and the situation keeps improving. However, due to the seemingly endless sweltering days, the Bangyes have fought their way back.  Besides these pictures, I often see some big-belly buddies walking bare-breast in my neighborhood, without a trace of uneasiness on their face.

The World Cup also arouses my enthusiasm for this round,magical ball at this special moment. The other day, while flipping through a  website, some pictures caught my eyes. In one picture, Jong Tae-Se, the North Korean player who rose to his fame in South Africa, was dragging his luggage in several plastic bags, while the other shows a Chinese player flaunting his fancy LV luggage cases.  I was stunned by the sharp contrast, and then realized  this might be part of the reasons why we have so many inferior male soccer players.
