A Nice Day

Published in Blog

Hello boys and girls.

After what x. months staying here in Beijing. Today is the best and the least poluted weather I have ever seen. So it's time to share a picture looking out of my apartment window.. I cant find a picture of a poluted day for comparison, but I can post one soon since those days are on the majority.. Tongue out

I receive an Air Quality rating from the US embassy in Beijing to my mailbox every morning. This mornings reading is also the best I've seen.

The air outside is rated 6 out of 500

Air quality guidelines

More info on air quality here.

From personal experience, a rating under 100 means a blue sky.
From 100 to 200, the air is mildly foggy and has a distinct smell.
200 and up, a heavy fog descends on the city.
