People here in Canada usually show some small excitement when they see a rainbow, but our Chinese visitors have aways been really excited to see one.

When my parents-in-law arrived  from Shanghai, when my mother-in-law saw a rainbow, she said it was the first one that she had seen in over 20 years.

Later we had some friends visiting from Shanghai. We saw a rainbow on a short sightseeing trip to Quebec. Everyone was excited and considered it one of the highlights of a day filled with many interesting sights.

Is it just difficult to see a rainbow in Shanghai or are they unusual elsewhere in China too?

I was in Shanghai in November, and I saw a rainbow on a very overcast day there. It was huge, though not overly colourful.
