The air is ok. During the summer it is quite hot, so one would want to stay indoors. During the infrequent sand storms, obviously, one doesn't want to be outside - Aug 2011
Generally good. We get a lot of sandy days where the city is covered with haze, but, as someone who does suffer with hayfever and asthma, it's not too bad. I've not had any problems. - Jan 2011
