    It appears that they are laying down newly kilned bricks to cool. I wonder why kind of clay is used, where it came from, and if it is a strong building material. I wonder if they make the bricks the same way as in Iraq, Bolivia or Mongolia. I wonder if techniques for making the bricks strong, able to withstand greater compression, could be improved by putting these brick-makers from different parts of the world in touch with each other. I bet there is a website somewhere for that.

    I wonder how the kilns are fired. What kind of fuel is used. I wonder if the creation and use of this fuel has an impact on the environment negatively, or even positively. I wonder if the process could become more efficient. I read somewhere that a group in India was able to create carcoal from pine needles and other forest rubbish, and thus they didn’t have to cut down the trees for fuel. I wonder if this would work where my friend Dana is right now.

    A lot of wonder about in 2 minutes…
