Meet Mount Agung, the bad boy of Bali. Lately, Mount Agung likes to smoke. Not sure if his favorite brand is Marlboro or Camels or Lucky Strikes or maybe even Gitanes (there are quite a few French people here after all).
In any event, while he seemed to have kicked the habit for awhile, he took it back up this week. Say it with me boys and girls. Smoking is bad — very, very bad. Smoking causes the airport in Bali to close. Smoking causes tourists to flee and causes local businesses to suffer. See the smoke coming out of Mount Agung? Bad Mount Agung, bad!
(Don’t worry, we aren’t staying this close to Mount Agung. We took some pictures as we drove by today.)
