“Towel Mask” Photograph

Chiang Mai and most of the rest of northern Thailand is in the midst of an annual blanket of “haze” at the moment. Perhaps more accurately called smog, it is a mixture of aerial pollution from forest fires, agricultural burning and traffic exhaust all held in place by a lack of rain and high pressure weather systems.

Many people walk the streets in face masks but this man seems to have taken to carrying a small towel around for the purpose. At least, that’s what I assume he’s doing.
