In every settlement, the pervasive and somewhat pungent small of “Turf”—a.k.a. peat—wafts through the winds. Peat remains a primary source of energy in these regions. It continues to surprise me that someone, sometime, somewhere, figured out that it is possible to burn this sludge (it is a soggy, muddy, mess of vegetation mixed with dirt) and that it burns almost as hot as coal and cleaner—when it is dry.
