Chinese WOTD – 伞


伞 → Sǎn → Umbrella

The rain is coming, slowly but surely, and unlike back home the post-rain effects felt much more impacting here in Beijing. As it is winter, the rain only makes the outside much colder, and the incoming wind makes it harder to resist. Umbrellas help quite a bit with the rainwater at least, but I think living in a country with a much warmer average climate and temperature does nothing to prepare me for the coming winter.
