Where Did the People Go?

The park around our little lake here is usually bombarded with people. This park attracts many and if it’s not raining it’s crowded. On Saturday, January 25th we took a walk around the lake. The smog was heavy and according to the Shanghai Air Pollution index or the http://aqicn.org/city/shanghai/ the levels were much lower than that in December, the reading was 255 when I checked.

I thought it was strange that on this particular day the park was virtually empty of pedestrians. I realize that the Chinese New Year migration has started; however, we have never noticed the park being so empty.

Where did the people go? Was it the smog or the Chinese New Year Migration?
