Cutting the future
This photo should have sound. It was taken on March 19 at 13:30 from the always spectacular view of the Bokor Hill Old Casino. It is possible to appreciate a great jungle that climbs the hill from the sea level, keeping a fascinating presence of endemic plants and animals like some species of bird raptors. Coming to this point for several times since 1999, it is possible to see the growing of some worrying white spots, but it was the first time I heard clearly the sound of chainsaws, like this:
In the photo you can appreciate also smoke… specially the Sihanouk Province woods burn during every dry season, many from natural accidentes and many from criminal hands. Nobody minds. At this span we will end all natural resources in Cambodia, cutting jungles, drying water sources, throwing garbage everywhere, from the sea to the hills.
