Smog, Smoke, Fire Season?

The smoke is just awful in Chiang Rai town today. Visibility is very poor and you can smell it in the air. It's just appeared so suddenly - the weather until a couple of days ago was wonderful.

I have given up my daily walks as i suspect the smoke hurts more than the exercise helps. Good excuse, I guess,, to spend lot of time in A/C reading books that i haven't gotten to yet.

This is my first march in CR in about five years....now i remember why i always went somewhere else around the first of march and won't make the mistake again next year....last year was Nha Trang vietnam which i highly recommend as a great spot to spend the smokey season...perfect weather, clear skies, shoulder tourist season so all kinds of great deals and not too crowded......plus those wonderful sea breezes.....

I do love Chiang Rai...especially from about Oct through Feb when it is close to perfect weather.... but i don't care for march/april here.

Very bad again today. Just popped out on the motorbike to the shops for a few minutes, which was enough to give me sore eyes and a headache. I'm seriously considering moving south for a couple of months seeing as we have a two year old.

In Phayao here, yesterday was bearable. Today woke up everything is just covered in thick white smoke. Cant even see anything. Eyes are sore, even classrooms have smoke inside. Worst of all I feel very unpleasant feeling in my chest.

Worry about our daughter, neither me nor my wife have got any holiday until somewhere in April.

While things can vary a bit, like when your neighbor burns his fields causing intense localized smoke, the pollution problem is generally a regional one and does not stop at national borders either. On a particular day one place may be worse than another but generally the smoke is everywhere.

Here is a shot of our thoughtful neighbor. Not much you can do but close up the house.

Archery is a wonderful and incredibly quiet sport to take up. Just sayin'. happy.png.pagespeed.ce.w4JpNxlSQhDiBcyvW
