I was in Ulaanbaatar for a month or so. I knew the air could get bad, but didn't realize it was that bad. Although I do remember exercise seeming quite a bit more difficult...

Gonna be tough to fix the problem though. Not a very rich country, and it seemed like a good amount of the pollution was from household coal burning. The infrastructure and majority of residential buildings don't seem like they would facilitate the installation centralized heating or extensive gas lines.

Hope they make progress though; it's a very interesting place.
