How is it that I can travel through 10 countries, inhaling all kinds of air (hello, China), eating all sorts of food, drinking all kinds of tap water, and not get any kind of allergy reaction or congestion until coming back to NYC?
Truth is- I almost always get some kind of throat sickness the first week back in NYC after being gone for a month or more. The city was on a path to improving air quality- even bragged in print earlier this year about how much the air quality has improved- but this summer has not been a good one for air quality. Don’t think I haven’t noticed a few air quality monitoring stations being taken off line, and fewer reporting stations for things like ozone.
The last week had some pretty awful respiratory days- which felt equivalent to inhaling cigarette ash while in a steam sauna. New York Lung is a real thing- remember what St. Patrick’s looked like before they cleaned it? How can I get some cleaning action in my throat and sinuses while I’m in this city?

The contrast you see in NYC. When two different worlds connect and learn to live with each other and create something beautiful, like an oasis in the concrete jungle of Manhattan. Us, humans, should take notes from something as simple as that. Life is too short to worry about others that we deem different, and just learn and embrace all the different cultures, mentalities... just be open-minded, for the world and everything in it, is too beautiful to just limit ourselves to what we know and also putting a limit to others freedom for just being who they are while doing so. “Be the change you want to see in the world.” #NYC#lifeisbeautiful#beyourself#loveothers
