Dear Matt and Mar,
[19.01.2019] The talk of the town is all about pm 2.5, in all of my years back in TH, and BKK, this is the first time that there has been such an alert concerning pollution in the air, and to be honest you didn’t need an alert, all one had to do was to look out of the windows.
The haze was a little more yellow and heavier than the normal morning mist, and it was still there way into the afternoon. So there has been a mad rush for masks (N95) and air filters.
Luckily, and I don’t really know why, we had masks strewn here and there, and not just the usual ‘I’ve got a cold’ masks (there was a huge box of those), these were N95 masks :-)
Hoping things will improve soon, it just reminded me of the smog over Beijing that was on the news sometime ago.
