When my family moved to Lima, Peru a few months ago, I was excited at the prospect of being able to do my daily run along the seaside.
Unfortunately, I need to cross a few busy streets to get from my house to the seaside, and I could really feel a tickling in my throat after running through these parts.
Now from an air quality perspective, Lima is not too bad. The near constant Pacific breeze makes the air pretty clear, but what Lima also has is a lot of very old diesel vehicles on the roads that make visible clouds of smoke when they go chugging through the streets.
