not sure if Riga is big city, but biggest in Latvia
No, I live in a village in the fields near a city.
Does it have a cathedral? If so, then it is a city.
it has only like 20 :d
well, if size goes according to number of churches, I'd live in a big city too. But it's 7 churches and one cathedral for about 3000 people, so no, not a big city.
But the air here is brilliant!
I remember living in a bigger city for a year and I always noticed a difference of the air quality.
I even notice it nowadays: I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere and the air is great. But when I go visit my parents (who live in a small town close to Frankfurt with the huge airport) the air gets thick and yuckie.
Well, technically the definition of a city is whether it has a cathedral or not (churches don't count). I don't think that that definition counts for non-european/american countries though.
Well, that is Frankfurt. I noticed the same around Berlin, but it wasn't too bad in certain parts of Köln or Aachen.
It is rather bad here in Belgium though.
well i live in a very small city but at least it is a city xD
i was so amazed when i was in shanghai ^^ such a big city it was like you could get anything there o.0
Smoke doesn't really bother me when I'm in the city, but then again smoking in the cities here is a risky affair since its illegal to smoke within 30 ft of a building entrance. If one doesn't care if they make me sick, I don't care if they just happen to get arrested. Outside the city where I am it doesn't bother me generally, but when I get out to the country areas I feel like my lungs open up and can breath much better than when I do at home.
I wish I had that rule here. People are always smoking in doorways etc. Our just outside of buildings. It's so annoying.
I've just been reading that pollution levels have hit a record high in Hong Kong. It's so bad that authorities are actually warning citizens to stay inside as much as possible. That's so terrible for the people living there who just want to go about their daily business and breathe air that won't kill them as they do it. I hope other major cities don't get this bad in the future. It's seems sort of inevitable though in some areas.
yeah youre right but we cant just blame the smokers
there are also a lot more reasons why the pollution is so high
And sadly it probably won't go down as it did at the end of industrialism in Europe.
Oh no. I wasn't blaming smokers at all in the case of Hong Kong. Their pollution is a huge problem and has nothing to do with cigarette smoke. I have also mentioned things such as car fumes in this thread several times. And let's not forget the crap that factories are bellowing out.
