^ stupid Mulberry jerks LOL.
Seriously though my neighborhood is completely littered with them there's a huge one in my front yard, and my car's, swimming pool, the street all turn yellow in the spring. it's astounding the amount of pollen it comes off those things.

Quite a bit of smoke in the air from Cali right now too which isn't helping anyone either.

I did a 6-mile speed walk in my condo complex wearing very inferior shoes (didn't think the talk would be that long but was going for the exercise while distracted on phone) anyhow, I return home and see my feet are BLACK. I have walked on huge blvds in filthy LA,CA w sandals and got just a little dirty. I was stunned that I stayed behind the gate for the 6 miles and truly had all black on feet. I naively did not know this place would be dirtier than LA? That seems perplexing? Something you locals know I do not? Do you get rain even less than LA? NYC....that town is clean! Not what people think. The regular rain washes all away and my feet were very clean from walking in sandals

That is interesting. Didn't think people brought trees here. Makes sense.
I talked to a good friend in Texas and he says Mulberry gets him there too. He says the Claritin made him very on edge. I took a few times in past and never noticed. Thanks kindly for the rec' of a DR. Cool.
I think a neti pot is good. So dry here. Good for nose.
I brought one, just need to get back in the habit.

my first year here was a month of sinus problems. It gets better. Pharmacist told me usually 2 full years for the body to adjust.

I walk daily in hiking sandals and my feet are still clean. I bet its your sandals, had that happen to me before with a pair. I think I bought them in Istanbul, knew they were made cheap but they were cute.

Last time (2012) I was in NYC it was dirty and some crazy homeless guy was going nuts talking to himself in front of me. I was afraid to pass him so I went in a store and bought some french Macaroons! yum! Lucky me!

My last trip, I could no longer take the nut cases and that dang HONKING constantly!

When I lived in Albuquerque I had trouble with getting allergy related sinus infection headaches. If that is what you are dealing with you don’t want to dry yourself up further by taking only Benadryl and drying up secretions that eventually get funky when they get sticky and can’t drain.

I recommend that you try mucinex as directed on the box, which thins secretions so that they can drain. Along with Claritin for the allergy symptoms. Also consider taking some Motrin 400 mg three times a day around the clock for a few days. With food if you have a tummy reaction to it. Motrin will take down any inflammation and swelling. It’s not just for pain. Keep taking it for a few days even if you are already feeling better.

Also be aware that if you are coming from sea level you can get a headache because of the change in elevation. You system will adjust to this lower level of oxygen in the air by making more red blood cells to carry the increased oxygen that you now need. This can take up to 6 months for that adjustment.

Kinda wordy but ideas that you might consider.

Yes, I was wearing very cheap pedicure flip flops. I will try another walk w legitimate nice sandals and see if I come home black.
I'm sorry, you had that experience in NYC. The homeless there 'in general' really leave you alone and are anti-social. Sadly, you were part of an isolated incident. Now, the homeless in Venice, CA were at a higher functioning level -- very drunk and disruptive. They scared me a bit due to uncertainty. I never had an issue in NYC and lived there for many years.
PS
I, too, grew to dislike the honking. I usually lived so high up I didn't hear it much but love to walk so sometimes had to endure.

Las Vegas is extremely dusty. We even have dust storms occasionally. And what is dust but tiny dirt? And when you open the windows the dust increases exponentially.
