Smoke

December 18, 2012

There’s a lot of smoke here. More than anyone healthy should breathe. Roadside rubbish-fires. Grilled chicken. Months of hill clearance – land which isn’t used for any subsequent purpose. Cigarettes from local and international manufacturers, exhaled by the nation’s men. Modified motorcycles with Honda exhaust pipes replaced by noisy and ineffective pieces of tin, spewing clouds of blue smoke. All held together by an atmosphere composed of dust and humidity.

It doesn’t add to health, that much is clear. How much it detracts, I’m not sure.
