Stinking around Hangdong,canal road this morning.Smoke quite visible in a number of areas and Doi Suthep starting to disappear. The village at the back of our moo baan have burnt just about everything they could in the last few days with ash falling around a large area.The worst of the burning right next door to the village headmans house/office.

It's going to be a bad long season this year I think.

Swimming at Kwang Vieng pool,Hang Dong, yesterday ash was falling in the pool from fires maybe a km away.

Lot of smoke which authorities obviously can't see. Makes a mockery of everything that has been promised and we are still in Decemeber.

Driving towards CM Doi Suthep was barely visible at 11.30am

Anyone know where to buy a good filter/protection mask, and a hand-held pollution monitoring kit? (CM preferably, BKK if needs be.)

I drive in to Chiang Mai every morning from the south. From about Thai Watsadu on the superhighway, the pollution becomes noticeable. South of there there is very little.

Today, I was stuck in stop start traffic from Central Festival to Thapae Gate.

I'm blaming the current pollution on the cooler air and heavier traffic combination.

The 3M shop on Wulai road sells 3M N95 masks in bulk, both child and adult sizes.
