I'd have prayed to the rain gods for a few day-long showers like this during the drought years. But now it's all got a bit much. My neighbourhood even has green grass now!!

Me too! I remember a few years back when we had the drought, I was happy when it rained on for days. But THIS is ridiculous!

Friend of mine who translated a book by a Frenchman who was in Yunnan in 1870-72 says the author wrote that one year it rained 100 days straight. He entered the country from the Changjiang (Yangtse) in the far north, came to Kunming, traveled around Yunnan a bit (left the country into Viet Nam), so I'm not sure where he saw all this. However, he reported flooding in Kunming.
Despite this, I reckon we're seeing the effects of global climate change at the moment.

So if its your friend, Alien, Liu at Mandarinbooks said around 2009 its soon translated. Sounds like a 'bar friend'. Will it ever come out? This is the Rocher book right.

10 years now. Wouldnt bet high on this. In fact, someone else could start translating it - it will be a success.
