I am in DHA Lahore right now and the smog is making it difficult for me to breath. Even the smell in the air is like that of something burning. Is it similar elsewhere in the city?
Also, any idea where to buy the masks that filter such air?#LahoreSmog #smog

I’ve just reached #Lahore from Islamabad and immediately felt an assault of gross smoke. Eyes burning, lungs feeling heavy, coughing. This feels more severe than our familiar (also gross) smog. What’s going on? #LahoreSmog
