Carol Taylor lives in Thailand and she shares the time consuming task of creating charcoal. Fascinating.
A mud charcoal making house.
This is the mud charcoal house where the charcoal is made primarily for fuel to cook…no mod cons here at all. Well not yet pretty much everything is done how it has always been done through the generations. The skills passed down and that is what I like here so much tradition still and in the main so much happiness.
But the lifestyle is hard there are some concessions to this and progress is slowly coming but much is still done the old way and by getting your hands dirty.
Making charcoal is an art…me I just said do you just throw the wood in and light it?….The look this crazy English lady got was a look of I suppose bemusement.
Of course you don’t, for a start the charcoal house cannot be built on or close to the water table or where the drainage is…
