An aggregate of happenings from the summer of 2011 in China. This dress has been sighted in every corner of China this summer, on every manner of lady.
The serviceable navy blue and white-striped dress first cropped up in late June, pushing its way to ubiquity around late July. You can’t go 24 hours in any Chinese city without seeing it. More photos, for your consideration:
This comically bad imitation of M&Ms candies was spotted in the supermarket:
Prized fighting crickets were being hocked by a street vendor. I missed the opportunity to scoop up a pair and pit them against one another in mortal kombat, or any other kind of kombat for that matter.
Other street vendors were not so lucky. The chengguan continued their campaign of harassment, unabated by the high summer heat.
Finally, we made a trip to Guangzhou. The sights included the Pearl River, Shamian Island, and the U.S. Consulate.
