Gas on demand is a luxury of the first world. Here in Chelem when the cylinder is empty we employ our wicked expat ingenuity. It’s rough out here, people; we live by our wits. Forced to subsist on brie, bread and chili since Sunday, I am taking back lunch. Today I blend vegetables and recover my humanity.
