Q: What do you get when you tell the leñero (firewood seller) that you don’t want pieces longer than 40 cm?
A: An excuse to buy a chain saw.
To be fair, he doesn’t cut it himself (that’s not him in the link above; last time I saw Dardo he was driving a taxi). And he charges me 20-25% less than the going rate: UYP 3,000 (USD 130+) per metric ton. Yes, per ton — I’ve discussed this before.
I just took readings of the stuff I got today: of maybe fifteen samples, most in the high teens-20%, one at 30%, and two at 11-12%.
Alas, there is no more curupay.
