Winter in Santiago

Hi all,

I am thinking about coming to Santiago to study Spanish for 2/3 weeks this July. I was just wondering if the weather and pollution will truly be awful - no visibility and very sooty air? I am quite sensitive to pollution, having lived in Hong Kong and absolutely loathing the air quality there, so I was wondering if winter in Santiago would be suitable for me. Thank you very much.

If you are sensitive to smog from autos and industry, I'd say NO. In other parts, there may be wood smoke pollution.

There will be air pollution, mainly from vehicles. It will not compare with Hong Kong. Fog is rare except early in the day.
