Wednesday newsletters always feature a luxury hotel and/or flight review. Today (December 16, 2015): Trip report: Finnair Airbus A330-300 Business Class Bangkok (Thailand) to Helsinki (Finland).

The story begins with a logging company buying Mashpi to log it out. They drove in the road and cleared a small area for the sawmill.
