A jungle ant nest, larger than a softball.
During the full moon, eggs are harvested and
eaten.  Ant caviar… dang, we missed it.
Perfect conditions for growing rice.  Agriculture
employs 80% of the work force.
Always amazing to see how people adapt.
Wonder what she has in the bamboo cage?
The joy of swimming in the middle of a rice


Almost every piece of property has a “spirit
 house”, the size of a large bird house.  Buddhists

believe that the spirit of prior property owners
inhabit the property.  They honor that spirit
to bring good blessings on the new owner,
often leaving treats, incense and toys.

Can you imagine how long it takes to dry
clothes here?  Hope the family water buffalo
doesn’t get tangled in the clothesline.
