Where in the world am I? (5)

I am in a country, a city with some of the worst air in the world.

The Weather Underground website, which I often check for the medium-range forecast, honours us with two unwelcome labels not widely enjoyed outside of Asia - 'Dust' and 'Smoke'.

I was enjoying a rooftop barbecue with some friends one evening earlier this week, when someone remarked, "Oh look, I can see a star. Stars! One.... two.... THREE STARS!" That was a remarkably clear night for these parts, a rare treat.

There's a full moon tonight, but there's very little chance of it penetrating the smog which now envelops us.
