Blue Skies in Beijing? This is a normal day in the Chinese Capital. Smoggy, white air. This was taken from the 14th floor in down town Beijing. We spent there about one week in late July and we did not see a glimpse of blue sky or sun. Sun was trying to break through this white mess, but never succeeded. Temperatures outside were around 95F, with humidity it felt like 105F. I didn’t have any problems with breathing and walked a lot, but just the view of this air was disgusting.
Beijing is an interesting city and a lot going for it, but till they figure out how to clean it up it won’t be super travel destination.
