Log Walkers

Friday, September 24th, 2010

I can see where some of this country might have been a jungle, once upon a time.  But with people using wood for all cooking, boiling water and heat, if you are a tree your days are numbered.

Atop Zomba Plateau, the heavy forestation is being methodically stripped.  People make the long walk up the mountain with machete and ax and poach trees of all sizes and then place the logs on their heads and return home.

It is against the law, but there is no one to enforce the laws and they do make the trek at dawn and dusk.
