these pics are from last week, the left hand one is in Buenos Aires during a relatively breathable moment on Friday afternoon and the right-hand one is in Montevideo on Saturday. the smoke is lots better now. that sucked. i guess the fires are still burning, so the wind could bring the smoke back this way again anytime, but i pray it doesn’t.
i heard that last week the subways were closing down because the city was so smoky that the conductors couldn’t see for all the smoke in the subway tunnels! que fuerte.
