It is suffocatingly dusty, a grey-brown haze looming over the city. People are wearing masks, wheezing or even coughing heavily as though the alveoli in the lungs can’t tell air from dust anymore.The visibility is bleak – 200 metres, I'd say – and people are struggling to keep their eyes open with the particulate matter settling on the eyelashes.
