chinese haze

did you know that 16 of the 20 dirtiest cities are in china?
china is consuming at an alarming rate, and in the future will be the next super power. fortunately for me, it's still pretty cheap to travel here, cheaper than i expected.
this photo was shot directly into the sun. thanks to a coal induced haze, you can look directly into the sun, and probably not worry too much about sun poisoning. the lung cancer will probably get you though.

traffic in chinese cities is crazy. cars and busses and bikes are sometimes at a dead standstill for god knows how long. i was fortunate enough in these shots that i didn't have to ask anyone to pose. they were all just stuck there.

on a side note, does anyone know about the whole military coup thing in thailand. i'm supposed to fly into bangkok on the 3rd of october and then head for the laos border. is this something i should be concerned about? there's no bbcnews allowed here on the internet in china, so i'm a little lost. my guess is that everything is ok, because no one in thailand would want to lose the tourist dollar. or the threat of missing, Dónde está Ché Pelotas?
