I think i know, what is burning there...

In 2001, during my time at the german KFOR (GECONKFOR II), i was stationated in FYROM (1st im Strumica, later in Tetovo, will post coordinates later).

The People there build a lot of furnaces in the hills along the streets outside of the villages/citys. And from time to time there burning old tires (and other garbage). When you are standing on one of the greater hills, you can see many fires burning... (smells very tasty :D ). Under these hills you can found kilos over kilos of the parts they are not destroyed by the heat, carcasses and other scrap iron...

Excuse the "not so good" english, it´s a bit rusty ...

+ to the post (3 minutes runs up ...)

If you take a flight above the rest of the Balkan, you´ll found additional smoke-clouds. But not everywhere are tires burning *g . In the province of Kosovo, sometime burns a house, church or other buildings of serbs or albanian. arrives on it who has started this madness... Weird neighbours !
