Shortly before I saw the Sichuan opera at the Jinjiang Theatre in Chengdu, it started to rain, heavily. Fortunately, I was already directly across the street from the theatre. I sat outside and enjoyed the rain for a few minutes before going inside. My feet were drenched by the time I walked across the street, but I've decided that I enjoy traveling in the rain. It is not always convenient, but it can be refreshing, especially during hot and humid China summers.
