shanghai usually has a lot of rains during June and July, and it's called "MeiYu Jijie". here "Yu" means "rain" and "Jijie" means "seanson", what does "Mei" mean?

"Mei" indicates "Yang Mei", i.e. red bayberry. June and July is also the season to enjoy red bayberry.

a friend called me to fetch a basket of red bayberry this afternoon, quite juicy and delicous. in china, one way to keep the fruit is to put them into Baijiu, in this way, the stong taste of the chinese spirit could be softened.

here is the pic of my red bayberries:
