Double Rainbow

Harbin, China

Last night, I was delivering food to my wife @6pm local time and it was sunny but sprinkling. I looked around for a rainbow and sure enough there was one, or two in fact. We have been in China 3 years and I have only seen three rainbows here. I have seen all three in the past two days. I showed the rainbows to the local card players; who were huddled under a shelter outside. I did not know how to show them exept to point at the rainbows and shout" Kan Kan , Kan Kan!". That is as close as I can say to watch, look or read in Chinese. They finaly understood me and came over. They took pictures and I delivered the food to my wife.
I usually make homemade food for my wife, but last night I sent the teenager out to buy (McDonalds) food. I gave my wife- a burger, fries and drink. We showed the class earlybird's the rainbows and then I went back to the apartment. It was a nice and relaxing experience. It helped me finish grading the final exams and submit my grades.
