It’s old news that Beijing air quality is terrible. The air quality index (AQI) shot through the roof this January. A “good” AQI is anywhere between 0 and 50, and anything between 0 and 100 meets US EPA standards. I was lucky enough to be in good ol’ BJ when the AQI exceeded 700. I took this photo on the subway on one of those unbearable days.
Joycelyn once described living in Beijing as having “Stockholm syndrome.”
I love China.
