after an unbelievable huge rainstorm on july 21, 2012, beijing officially became beijing sea. people living there try to evolve overnight from terrestrial to aquicolous, and they did a great job.
on the bus:
in the restaurant:
someone suddenly have sea view apartment under their window:
and forbidden city changes its name to forbidden lake:
they probably are the happiest residents of the city:
oh, and this guy as well:
but someone are not that happy…
firemen and volunteers are rescuing the trapped passengers on a bus:
someone is rescuing themselves, and their loved ones:
a girl is waiting in the rain, with a car plate she found, and a life buoy:
that buoy is necessary because….
and someone is killed even so many people are worrying and trying to help…
on chinese twitter, everyone is forwarding a status: if your car is trapped in the water, open your window as large as possible, because when the water increases, you cannot open your door because of the water pressure.
from internet i know that on that night, many people are trapped on the street, in the airport, far away from their home.
some of them got help from nearby people, by staying in others’ places for the night. some volunteers drove to the airport to pick up passengers. not much, but some.
there is a city, after the rainstorm it looks like venice, during sand storm it looks like dubai, when fog falls it looks like london, when government officials drive out and all the streets are closed for them, it looks like pyongyang.
the name of the city is beijing.
