drilling and blasting

Photos of a road construction sites and mines using dynamite to blast rocks (Bolivia, Vietnam and India)

In Vietnam, I stopped to see what the road construction people were doing and I realized that there was 20 pounds of dynamite sitting on the road just next to me! There were sticks of dynamite all over the place, as well as blasting caps.­ The motorized traffic on this country road is so infrequent that they did not really care about any sort of traffic control.­ Just don't be there when they blast! Next blast in 15 minutes.­

I had never seen real dynamite in my life.­ It feels strange to be so close from something that can blow you to small pieces.­ I hope the dynamite they use is good quality and stable.­ I still have the stick they gave me as a souvenir (just kidding).­ Actually I don't think they would have cared if one was missing, though.­ There were so many sticks everywhere!
