>Sherwin is the proud owner of a rice field which is a good business for his family. I have been looking forward to seeing it for a long time, and we finally got a chance to go there. However, since we don’t have a vehicle we rented a taxi to take us there, at $50 for the day which I deemed very expensive but worth it.
We arrive at a neighbouring field and walk in.
We walk under the Mango trees, which the owners have just sprayed
Here is the field.
It is really muddy here. The mud is like clay. I set up camp on a bench.
Some workers caught a frog and I think, were saving it for dinner.
Papaya grows like a weed
I was excited to see an orchid in the wild
This adjoining land is for sale, for around $3000. They want to buy it, and his Mum and Dad picture their retirement there, in a small house.
It had squash, and a cool surprise
Can you spot the animal in this photo?
Don’t go closer! Sherwin warned. It will shake!
Here is a Cacao tree
Someone is drying the seeds for eating
We have a picnic lunch
I see for the first time Ube, or purple yam growing.
Sherwin’s Mum holds the Ube up for my photo
A ginger plant
Ducks and Turkeys like to swim in the rice field.
We hang out under the mango trees in the shade.
