I am becoming a little bemused by the way people simply do not believe me when I say the air is clear and the sky is blue in Beijing. It has been this way for the whole week I have been here. I have been out running every day. To be sure, we will get a bad day or two in the coming weeks, but these stretches of clear air are becoming increasingly frequent. For those who have been brainwashed by the corporate press, a few more photos – and yes, they are from Beijing, looking out of my apartment.
