Smoke

Just wanted to give you an idea of the smoke that is floating over this city. Allergies are on the rise, hacking coughs are heard throughout, and even weather.com has created an icon to demonstrate the air quality:

    If only…they are burning the land in the campo (countryside), it happens every year. All over Paraguay and Bolivia and even parts of Argentina and Brazil practice “slash and burn” because they think its the most efficient way to “renew” their land for future crops, but it covers the entire region with black smoke from all the burning ground. It’s pretty much awful šŸ˜¦

    I wrote about it a little more a couple entries earlier – https://anywherehome.wordpress.com/2010/08/20/the-day-the-smog-came/
