What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Generally very good, though allergies (pollen) have been a seasonal issue for me here. - Aug 2020

Good - there is always a nice breeze off the sea. The sewer system is inadequate though, so sometimes you can really smell the sewage just walking around the city. People with mold allergies might have problems. - Jun 2014

Unhealthy - despite the proximity to the ocean, the city is quite polluted from all the bus and car exhaust. - Jan 2011
