Day One Hundred Seventy Four, July 15, 2011

not so pretty today

This year Shanghai reached the highest level of pollution ever recorded in its history…

On days like this, the city looks surreal, almost like a futuristic movie, the kind that forecasts a not so bright future, where people have to move around with masks (as is actually the case here) and where the sky looks all kinds of murky colors. It is frightening really what we are doing to our planet, and how happily most of us seem to go about ignoring it. And Shanghai is only one of many polluted cities on our pretty blue (not so blue anymore thanks to us) globe.

Looking forward to some clean air in our the next month of travel! Greetings from Shanghai!
