in Melbourne over the past few months with smoke haze over the city and outer suburbs from the bush fires in country areas (long hot dry summer and in drought) it's been choking and I've never known it so bad but far worse for those effected and have lost their homes.
The haze has cleared up now and it's wonderful to breathe fresh air again... however, I know that the smoke in South East Asia is an annual problem and often reaches as far as Bali.
Given how it's been here I would hate to holiday in such an atmosphere.
PS We had a drop a rain today... it was bloody lovely.
