I often wonder how many months the pollution and dust in Saigon will take off my life. For this reason, I can’t imagine living here long term. Hell, I imagine that living here long term is akin to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day! That may be an exageration, however no one really knows what a toll this environment is taking on people’s lungs and life span.
As you have seen, I have a little mask that I picked up from a local street shop here. In reality, it doesn’t do much to keep cargcinogins from getting into my lungs, which may be why I have developed a ’smoker’s cough’. However, it does help me fit in when I’m driving and people don’t stare quite as much. Last week though I decided to invest in my health a bit more by purchasing a proper pollution mask.
