Either my phone has given up trying to understand Shenzhen weather or someone is playing a bad prank on me. If you are, stop it. Stop it right now.
Insane. Videos to follow.
And you decided to stay closed on a Monday. So I spent it instead on Starbucks. No hard feelings, okay?

It's been pouring rain the last 30 minutes. You wouldn't know it from looking at Yahoo's weather app. Beautiful weather app though.
Eating really really tasty cooked Smurfs.
I'm expecting my feet and legs to be pretty sore after each Kendo class.
I will be doing Kendo three times a week.
I've arrived back to Shenzhen to discover a (relatively) cheap foot massage place has just opened on the first floor of my apartment building.
Something tells me I'll become a very frequent customer.
There's always at least one supercar parked in the lot. Today's was a Ferrari 458 Spider.
Images are playing on the Shenzhen Metro cars' TV screens as I sit here. The other big story? Bird flu.
Cars also enjoy driving and parking on them. I almost just got hit by one.
Shixiabei, Futian, Shenzhen.
Arrived to Shanghai this morning, took the subway straight to the race track, enjoyed the Chinese Formula 1 GP, took the subway back to the airport, and am now sitting on the airplane ready to travel back to Shenzhen.
Not a bad day. Not bad at all.
It rained in Shenzhen for three days straight prior to my departure from the city on Wednesday. This is the result:
A massive sinkhole apparently brought on by heavy rain opened up in Shezhen, China, swallowing a security guard alive and causing nearby residents to evacuate. Yang Jiabin, 25, was walking in the Futian district near new construction yesterday afternoon when the ground gave way beneath him, opening into a 26 foot-wide, 52 foot-deep crater; despite the quick arrival of rescue workers, he reportedly died on-scene.
Futian is the district I live in. Scary.
By the way, why does it seem so difficult for foreign journalists to correct spell 'Shenzhen?' Roughly half of the news articles I read about my city misspell its name.
