Beijing Air


Arrived last night to Beijing.  This is a shot from the cab on the way to the airport to show the lousy air quality. It's not so apparent in the photo, but you can only see about two blocks in front of you and the tops of tall buildings disappear in the haze. Made my eyes burn. Flight to Guizhou was uneventful, and I am posting this from the Yidu Hotel in Guiyang.

OMG. This looks almost as bad as Pontianak during the forest fire generated smoke that closed down airports. How is it that we as human beings are so successful at degrading our most fundamental resource needed for life.
