Topical: National Day + Rubber Duck + Beijing Pollution
@天气预报: #Smog Warning# Going to the Summer Palace to See the Giant Rubber Duck? It’ll Be Hard to See Clearly! Severe smog has covered the Big Yellow Duck with a layer of “gauze”. Many tourists who came especially to see the Giant Rubber Ducky say the smog has made it hard to see the Giant Rubber Ducky clearly. Today, Beijing’s smoggy weather will continue to get worse as well as persist until the end of the long holiday. Everyone should avoid going outdoors, and the elderly, children, and other sensitive groups should probably remain indoors as much as possible. http://t.cn/zRLJIEw”
