Charcoal stack, Kolmila, Carbonero!

  Somewhere between Viñales and Puerto Esperanza in Cuba 2008.

I asked the Charcoal burner if it wasn´t bad for his health to work in that smoke all day long?
No, he said. I have been doing this for 35 years and I´m perfectly okay!

The last period for this kind of charcoal production in Sweden was during world war two.
