About the Air Pollution

I am working on a grant proposal that’s due Sunday and don’t have time to write a full post. Meanwhile, here are two recent and very interesting posts from other blogs about the air pollution problem in Ulaanbaatar.

This one, Life in a Toxic Cloud, was recently published in The Huffington Post, and this one, What’s in a Mask, was written by an expat living in UB and working in media. It’s not just China’s pollution getting international attention.

As they note, the question of masks comes up all the time here. As both my mother and mother-in-law are regular readers, I will say quickly that, yes, we have the fancy masks. Just don’t ask if I wear it every day, because there are lots of excuses not to: my walk to work is short (eight minutes if I have to wait for red lights), the air doesn’t seem that bad, no one else seems to…blah, blah.

Tomorrow I definitely will. Try.

    We have a friend who’s been living in Shanghai for several years and after health problems wears the fancy mask every day and insists that their 2 daughters do, too!
    And re the Hot Bloody Marys, sounds ideal for curing a cold … and so to bed!
