Daily Photo – The Palm Oil Road


You can’t miss the many locations across Sumatra where the pam oil plantations line the highways from south to north and east to west. Sometimes as far as the eye can see is nothing but palm oil and the industry continues to grow. Hopefully at some stage it can slow quickly enough not to destroy the amazing eco system that still survives and thrives in some remote areas of the island.
