Some observations from travels

Padi Bali

Padi Bali, is a generic term for the variety of rice traditionally grown around Bali.  The gentle climate and abundant supply of water from the valleys make for an ideal combination for growing rice.  Driving through Ubud and Gianyar areas you will experience the wonderful greenery all around you.  Upon closer observation you will admire the rice at its varying stages of their 210 day cycle.  Here are some images to enjoy.

The women on the fields are very hard-working using traditional ways of harvesting.  They even welcome tourists to help!

Aside from the mid-day heat, it’s very relaxing walking through the rice fields, green as far as your eyes could see.
