Yes, possibly, new, but similar.

I've had a look at some old drawings of Jarot Asem, and it does differ a bit from your "Jarot Asem". Maybe he calls it "Pamor Koncir".

tamarind fibre

Anthony, re pamor jarot asem, the craftsman who produces this pamor might perhaps claim to have invented it, but if he did, he is certainly an extremely old man now. I don't know exactly how long...

Thanks Jaga.

Actually pretty OK today, they promised highly dangerous conditions, but these have not eventuated.

Last Saturday was real bad news though. Didn't touch me, but too close for comfort.

Thanks for your thoughts Jens.

These fires are the worst I've ever seen, maybe the worst since white settlement. They are savage, and they are very extensive. But for those who understand these...
