Beijing Air Quality

Though the President of the International Olympic Community praised Beijing for its efforts to reduce pollution levels, I must confess that it takes a while to get used to this air. It took about five seconds for my throat to burn after exiting the airport terminal and, twice over the past three days, I felt nauseous.

Sometimes the sun works as a valuable tool to measure pollution levels.
