Amazing autumn

"The most beautiful time in Peiping is just before and just after the Mid-autumn Festival. The days are neither too cold nor too hot, and the days and nights are equally long. There are no dust storms from Mongolia as in the winter and no hail storms as in the summer. The sky is so high, and so blue, and so bright, that it seems to say smilingly to the people of Peiping, 'In these days nature does not threaten or cause destruction.' The Western Hills and the Northern Mountains take on a deeper blue and every evening they are darkened in a multicolor sunset robe." - passage from The Yellow Storm by Lao She.
