The Air is Grey

Yup, you got that right. Forget about the sky is grey. It's not only the sky that is grey anymore. It's the air.
I woke up this morning, I looked out my window and wtf? The air is grey.
At first I thought some a**h**** was burning some trash but no, the air is grey.

And it not only get into your lungs, it get into your eyes too.

Wow - sorry to hear that Melisa - I was in Indonesia a year and a half ago and the air was one of the truly great things about it (it was so clear - although the humidity killed me lol!)

Hope things return to normal soon!

Hi Ben!
Which part of Indonesia did you go to? I'm here at Jakarta the capital city. Normally the air is grey too, but today is especially bad.

Hi Melisa,
Jakarta is no different from any of the teeming cities around the world. Topography and wind direction too has something to do with that kind of problem besides all the soot that is being belched uncontrolled from industrial sites and motor vehicles -(assuming that forest burning has not yet begun in Indonesia)

This world is going bonkers. Authorities inculcate personal health and healthy living but that axiom gets entangled in a vicious cycle in the names of modernisation and the pursuit of profit.

I was in Jakarta Melisa - I didn't stay long though :( Not long enough for sure - had a whirlwind look round then off to Kuala Lumpur (or was it the other way round?) I was hopping my way from London to Brisbane lol!
