A Ring of Fire

This is looking out our front window at dusk one night last week. Could it be aliens? Ewoks? Johnny Cash? Puff the Magic Dragon? A governmental conspiracy? Harry Potter? Some lost members of the Olympic closing ceremony production team?

Most likely, it's farmers burning off land for planting. It's illegal, and sad, because the forests are beautiful up in the mountains. Also, burning is not the best thing they could do for the soil. But still, it happens. We're guessing at night so that no one could navigate the mountain roads and paths in the dark to find the culprits!

Swahili for fire is moto.

My vote is Puff the Magic Dragon. Ooohh. I know. It's Johnny Cash disguised as Puff the Magic Dragon, masquerading as an ewok.

Yup. That's it.
