Beijing Syndrome

Beijing, China

Less than 24 hours after landing I developed the Beijing Syndrome - a clear the mucus from my throat cough. It will be so nice to leave this air and head to Xinjiang!

Yesterday my friend & I strolled through the art district. Very strange smells were heavy in the air making breathing difficult.

My first thought was oil paint odor or other art supply. But neither smell was familiar and I've done multiple art mediums including the chemical heavy photo developement.

My second thought was chemical warfare gas attack. I would have been doomed! There was lots of remodeling going on but the smells did not fit that activity, either.

Regardless, I made it out alive!
