- Wind of Change by Scorpions
The weather has gotten a lot cooler this week, especially early in the morning and I’ve to wear a light jacket now before leaving the house, I do missed the hot summer weather already. But today is a nice day, too nice to be stuck inside working, but not much I can do.
I stopped by the Rice Paddy today after work, but had noticed this car several days back, I thought to myself then that who ever drove this car couldn’t have survived.
The driver was her daughter, believe it or not she was okay and only has a broken foot. The accident happened last Saturday around 3 in the afternoon, this goes to show that accident can happen to any of us, so drive safely.
This year has not been very steady for this rice paddy, the cold weather in the spring had lingered a lot longer, so the planting got pushed back several weeks. They’ve been busy harvesting their rice crops this week, at one point I saw 3 ladies out there in the rice field, and most of the front and back paddies are done.
These Kao Kom or purple sticky rice don’t look so good, and I noticed that the water is drying up also. There goes my chance of purchasing Kao Kom from them.
Some rice plants are still young, and it might be the end of September before they can harvest these.
Another victim, this one is a huge bug, looks very much like a Buffalo Dung Beetles (Mang Jud Jee in pasa Lao), I’m not sure how it got up there.
