Beat­ing the heat

China Daily (USA) - - SHANGHAI - GAO ERQIANG / CHINA DAILY

Shanghai res­i­dents seek re­prieve from the swel­ter­ing tem­per­a­tures by swim­ming in Zhang Jia Bang, a small wa­ter­way that con­nects Huangpu river and Yangtze river, though the lo­cal govern­ment has en­cour­aged peo­ple not to do so in public wa­ters be­cause of safety con­cerns. Shanghai has been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a heat wave over the past week, with the daily high tem­per­a­ture hit­ting 38 C.
