Beijing air quality: a photo a day

365 photos of Beijing air quality

The photographer in the linked article, Zou Yi, took a picture a day at the same time and location to show 365’s of BJ’s air pollution. He’s encouraging others to do the same in other cities. There’s a link in the article to follow his weibo account.

Who’s taking on Hohhot? I’m not in town now, but our previous 18th floor apartment would have had the perfect view.

Have you done this or similar projects in Hohhot? Do you want to share them with us? If so, leave us the link in the comments below.

View of Hohhot, Inner Mongolia Today

Today three things happened simultaneously to result in the photos below.
First, it was the clearest day we’ve had in a long time. (Thanks to the rain, I suppose).
Second, both me and handsome hubs were home with not too many pressing things to do.
And third, the door to the roof of our apartment was unlocked. By “unlocked” I mean that the lock had been previously broken my someone else.

Anyway, here’s what Hohhot looked like today from just east of city center, 27 floors up.

Today’s update

There isn’t much of an update today because our internet is s o o o o s l o w these days. Today’s update has actually taken me two days, but it’s that I got the photo gallery back up on the around the city page. You may remember the gallery from before we moved servers. It’s back now for your viewing pleasure.

For the 5-8 of you at the Mongolian wrestling event this evening (see the forum) I hope you are enjoying it. Leave a comment about the event for those of us at home with the kids!
