The air pollution here this week has been so bad you could cut it with a knife. It is truly amazing. I have never been in a country where the air pollution is so VISIBLE and to be quite honest it is more than a little scary to know I am sitting here and have no choice but to breathe it in 24 hours a day. There is nothing I can do about it. On days like today, I can’t even see the mountains that face my apartment just across this small bay. I would hate to imagine what I am inhaling. Hong Kong is a really beautiful place, but this smog is without a doubt the worst thing about living here.
You know the air is thick when you can stare directly into the sun!
