Smoke in Moscow

Description

Moscow, it's the summer of 2002 and the city is coated with a thick haze of acrid black smoke. The smell is atrocious. The sun is barely visible in the mid day sky. Why? Because of a recent heatwave and seriously dry conditions, the peat-bog forests in the Moscow suburbs have actually caught fire.
