Around the village...

Went trippin' on the motorbike this arv to enjoy the fabioso weather. Who would've thought that rainy season ended less then 2 months ago, it's so dry now.

This limestone mountain is about a km and a half from our house and has a fresh water stream running under it with dozens of little caves.

Scaled a few mountain cliffs...

Saw some fabulously green vines (haven't touched up these photos at all)

Saw lots of rice fields being ploughed..

Was inspired by a banana tree...

Saw a disturbing case of pollution... thousands of mushroom bags dumped in a local creek

And saw lots n lots of rice drying on the side of the road, all the way home...

C- It is really beautiful here, I love it when we get out and about!

Bec-there's a couple of mushroom farms in the village and all of them just dump the used bags either in the middle of a field or like this in the creek. Seriously, there were thousands of bags...so sad.

Al-great to talk, wish your camera was working!!
