One of the most surprising elements of Shanghai for me has been the weather. It has been far more hot and humid than I had ever expected. Temperatures have been generally in the upper 80's with 84% humidity. I really have not sweated this much in my life! They say that it will get cooler, and I am counting on that. Below is a video of the rain from the balcony of our apartment. It was pouring but still super sticky and HOT!
