Washer but No Dryer

Many of the balconies in China had laundry out to dry. The reason is to conserve energy. When we entered our hotel rooms, our key would also turn the power on in our room. Brilliant idea to save power. Many balconies were also closed in.
Before the year 2000, areas in China did not experience sandstorms and now they do. One of our guides cleaned their house, left the windows open, and when they returned, there was an inch of sand throughout the house. Cancer in China is also on the rise. When you travel through China, they are planting trees everywhere. They realize they have a problem, and are working to solve it. Their wish is that it is not too late.
