Big slumber party on Chinese campus
Temperatures in half of China hit 35 Celsius (95 F). In Wuhan, one of the three ‘hot pots’ along the Yangtze River, temperature soared to as high as 39 C, and it is humid as hell.
Chinese college dorms, which are mostly AC-less, are the worst-hit. Having no AC at their dorms, students at Wuhan-based Central China Normal University had to sleep on bamboo/straw mats in the air-conditioned school gym during the night to escape the summer heat.
