Does anybody has any information about the situation in Sumatra? I read all the news about the forest fires in Sumatra. They seem to cause a lot of trouble in Malaysia. We will travel to Medan next week and also intend to stay in West Sumatra for a couple of weeks. I don't like to put my children in a smoke curtain, so if anybody knows about the recent situation in North and West Sumatra I would like to hear from you.
