Grateful for the blue sky

After watching the first 20 minutes of this amazing documentary (allowed online one week by the Chinese government, 200 million views), in which the presenter interviews a 6 year old girl in China who has never seen a star or blue sky, I was dazzled anew by, and grateful for, the clear blue sky here: 10 in the morning and the moon is plainly visible.

Which is not to imply Uruguay is an ecological paradise; in contrast, most cropland is annually (or more) drenched in glifo (a.k.a. Roundup herbicide). And the beach was filthy today, including hundreds of meters of fishing line left behind by fishermen.
