Burning the fields in our mubaan

This afternoon I heard a sound of rain. I went out to look and no, it wasn’t rain. It was a field on fire. I grabbed my camera went and watched abit. The wind was increasing so I called the kids to come and watch. Apparently it took the fire engine 30 min to come .The fire came with in 2 meters of someones house. Crazy. All because someone wanted to burn the field with all the dry trees, leaves etc

  1. It happens here in France too. People have no idea how fast dry scrub and grass burns. Anyway I hope that the smog ends for you soon. BTW we are moving to Bangkok in august for a year and I would love to meet you if/when we head north – which I am sure we will. Also do you twitter?

    Fires burning on the Thai side of the Mekong at Vientiane – looks beautiful – at least at night it does 😉
