Canon Explorer Johnny Haglund’s Borneo adventure goes on. Read his new blog on diamond mines
Visiting the Cempaka diamond mine here in South Kalimantan, Borneo, is my second assignment in a year to cover diamond miners. The first one was in the Democratic Republic of Congo (see my earlier blog from October 2013).
The Cempaka diamond mine and the Mbuji Mayi diamond mine in Congo, are in many ways two totally different worlds. The labour is the same, though. These men work just as hard as those I met in Congo, and the surroundings are hot, humid and mosquito infested, with rain every now and then pouring out of the sky, making the mud sticky like glue.
