MADE IT TO PENANG, which I was nervous I’d miss. Amazing naan and cauliflower from the famous Kapitan restaurant, and damn fine tea.
many blame the miles of indonesian palm oil plantations set ablaze for this haze, seen here as I depart Penang-Buttersworth. As I learned from a semi-skeezy or maybe just weird palm oil technology developer (#niche), is cheaper for landowners to clear trees too tall to harvest with flame over anything else. Hard to believe, though, that this is all Indonesia.
