Pollution

Just popped out of the office to buy some lunch and was aghast at the smog level around here

I could literally only breathe cars' exhaust fumes and it was revolting. Lack of wind today combined with this are being a major thoroughfare make it likely to have above average levels of pollution but I'd never seen (and breathed it) so bad

Re: Pollution

Maybe I should move up there as I could do with losing a few pounds - then again my wallet could not afford the congestion charge, never mind a house.
