It’s hard to convey the humidity in photos—I took a snap for my instagram story showing the condensation pouring down the windows of a convenience store, but I won’t put it here. Just know that the rain was on-and-off, and it was about 30ºC. ~90% humidity. One has to take care of one’s camera moving from inside and outside…

The above shot conveys the weather quite nicely. Snapped on my phone at either 5 or 10x zoom, the heavy, dark clouds over the city dominated the week.

I was reminded of Japan multiple times, with these dirty-yet-clean alley ways seemingly leading to nowhere. Distinctly Asian.
