Wow, Asian Dust

There is a phenomena called Asian Dust(or Yellow Dust) where fine participate sand from China’s dessert is carried over and deposited in other countries.  It can be quite nasty at times and explains why I’ve had this annoying dry-cough for a couple of weeks now.


This is the bench where I normally sit at my thinking spot.  I’ve wiped off an area to sit because the all the surfaces were coated like this.  There is some serious concern about China’s pollution being carried over this way too.  I’m just glad that the winds go toward Japan and not from it!  Not sure if I’d be happy with all their radiation problems, let alone the ones they aren’t telling us about.

I really it am doing my best to enjoy this weather.  Gonna miss it when the hot season hits!

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!

  1. When my son taught in Seoul they did not take the kids outside for recess on those days. When we visited Beijing, we experienced that one day – the whole world around us was yellow.

    1. It’s kinda crazy isn’t it. I read one story where Korea sent 1000 trees over to be planted along the edges of the dessert but China decided to put them along streets saying :”We will decide where to plant them”. If true, that would be really sad.
