The neighborhood we are staying in:
Woke up at 2:30 a.m. Charged my laptop and played with the Flash 10 sound api a bit while waiting for the sun to rise. Kristine finally woke up and we went for a walk through the local rice fields. The rice is more grown and much greener than it was last year when I was here in March. Pretty much anywhere you look there are rice fields. If there’s 100 square feet of land that doesn’t have a building or road on it or is serving some other very important purpose, there is likely rice planted there.
Lots more photos of rice on my flickr page.
