How Chongqing people got through summer in times of no air conditioning
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Speaking of the summer in Chongqing, people always think about the extremely hot weather and are very anxious to stay in rooms with air conditioning. But in the days when there was no air conditioner, how did the people get though the blistering summers?
Cattail leaf fan
In childhood, nearly every family had a cattail leaf fan and grandparents always took the cattail leaf fans wherever they went. Nowadays, we have grown up and there is no cattail leaf fan, but we still remember the days when we shook the fans with grandma.
Cool bamboo chair
Such a cool bamboo chair is seldom seen now. In every summer in my childhood, I liked sleeping on it very much because it was much cooler than a bed. In past summers, grandpa always liked sitting on it, shaking a cattail leaf fan, and gradually falling asleep, while the dog lay with open eyes on the floor next to him.
