OUT WORLD - Pollution


Pea soup in Singapore


the same in Hong Kong


and even on the Great Wall in a remote area.
Sorry, I could not find the ones of people wearing 
smog masks in Beijing.


If you think this is bad, think of me with my lungs blocked and 
my barely functioning heart not coping well at all.

No, I'm not exposed to pollution here on the farm, those shots
are from our trip to China 12 years ago.

I'm just sick as a dog with some dreaded lurgie.

It looks like I shall make a strategic retreat for a while
and take to my bed.

  4. I recall awful pollution in Rome and in Athens, but China is the worst for air quality. Their pollution hurts trees in Canadian forests! Take care, dear friend.

  5. HI Arija I am so sorry you have great difficulty breathing but I hope it improves very soon. Snog and fog are no goo for anyone.

  6. By most of your comments, it looks like I wasn't clear enough.
    The pictures are from 2002, me being laid low is, unfortunately, right now. Nice clean air, just my lungs are not.

  9. Oh no, I'm sorry you are not well. Please take care. The smog here can be bad at times too because of the mountains. Other times, not so bad. I think much better than Beijing. xx

  20. I am so sorry you are ill! My international students (in Vancouver) told me about the terrible pollution in some of their countries. It was one of the first things they mentioned about appreciating Canada. Pollution is no joke! Rest and heal well!

  21. Yes Arija, that's the best place to be with warm lemon & honey drinks. We have had some very foggy mornings down here on the plains but way too cold for me to venture out with my camera. Hope you're on the improve soon.

  22. Sad that there is so much pollution in the world. We get inversions in the winter when it's very cold that keep all the pollution in the valley, and then of course we can get lots of smoke in town during the summer if there are big forest fires. No forest fires this year as we've had lots of rain with rivers at flood stage.

  23. Oh My dear Arija, do take care and tea, drink the hot tea with honey, and steam baths, hot steam bath and breathe as deeply as you can. Love and hugs, please get well soon

  24. What a terrible sight. How wrong that anyone should be exposed to air they can see. Glad you are on the clear aired farm and hope you are feeling better.

  25. Healing wishes to you, and the whole Mother Earth too, Arija!
