Thailand Is Burning
Fire is a popular tool in Thailand, and in Uthai Thani is seemed to be used even more than usual. While we were driving down the road I noticed lots of smoke up ahead, and it turned out to be a sugarcane field where they were burning off the leftovers after a harvest. Turns out that they give the fields a good burn BEFORE the harvest too, because cane is easier to cut if you burn it a little, go figure.
