Insane rain in Pudong!



I just had left my home to walk to Longyang road to grab a subway to go downtown for lunch with a friend, when a insane rainstorm started. In the last days it had rained here every once in a while, mostly for about 5 minutes. So I thought ‘let’s wait’, which was a big mistake. 3 minutes later I was completely wet, from up to down. If you watch the video, the moment where I use the f-word, that’s when the rain changed direction and hit my body completely. A thunderbolt every 20 seconds or so. Insane. Of course a cellphone camera (here: Nokia N93i) can’t really capture the forces of nature, but you get a idea of what was going on. Or is still going on. While typing this entry, it’s still raining outside…
