The Difference A Day Can Make

It's been really hazy in Guangzhou recently. Usually in the summer it rains so often that the sky is pretty clear when it's not raining. The air quality is pretty good since the rain clears it out. This time of year is nice because its still warm, hot even, but it doesn't rain very much. Unfortunately that means that the pollution builds up and gets pretty hazy. My parents in Beijing don't know what I'm complaining about, a bad day here in terms of air quality is basically a good day in Beijing. I'm not sure people back home get exactly how bad it can be here so I found two pictures taken a few days apart in Beijing. What you are looking at here isn't weather it's pollution. Now that's China.
