If my mother-in-law had been here in Spain when her grand-daughter was born, she would have had a fit. My wife and I walked to a restaurant in a cold, northerly wind late in the evening, 36 hours after she gave birth. Even so, none of the forecast or predicted misery afflicted my wife. She was well rugged up against the cold. Chinese women are no different to other races, we are all human beings.
