Calves of steel, lungs of soot

I am quite undecided about what the probable health effects of this trip will be. Walking several miles a day should, in principle, be good for me. But the hilly terrain and humid weather mean I'm often breathing deeply, which means nice big lung-fulls of thick and polluted air blowing in from Shenzen on the mainland, home of several Chinese factories (perhaps producing some nice lead-painted toys?), and not home of any environmental regulation.

At least it creates some pretty sunsets.
