Gobi Desert, Meet My Lungs

London has fog, Los Angeles has smog (well, OK, Seoul has smog too), but neither of them has the product of Chinese desertification drifting through their atmosphere every spring.

I swear the air quality in Seoul was the worst I have ever seen it today. Granted I still managed to be productive (did a lesson, went shopping at E-Mart and attended Korean class) but walking outside was a miserable experience and it got worse as the day wore on. Tomorrow I hope to be out and about with a friend. I may have to invest in a surgical mask first.
