This week the AQI has been higher than normal. There is a restriction on cars allowed on the road. Usually cars cannot drive all days of the week depending on your license plate. One day out of the work week you would need to find alternate transport to get to school/work. For high level days they will announce even more license plate numbers that will not be allowed to drive. This weekend half the cars were banned from driving. It’s a good plan that they do practice here. China also has a good train system and convenient buses so that we do not feel stranded. Honestly, the hazy day did not change my weekend plans at all. I wanted to relax and study my Chinese book. The kids are playing video games and maybe we’ll go swimming after a while of lounging around together. Still having a good time here.
