Oct. 15 was a beautiful blue sky day and the rice was ready to cut.  We volunteer helpers started out the day early combing the field for MAMUSHI (poisonous snakes that hang out around these parts) we didn’t find any but one turned up later.  We cut one of 4 fields before the kids arrived and then the kids worked the remainding 3 fields.

in the back ground, the four little fields that the school uses.  In the foreground, a field of rice that has already been cut and hung up to dry. This area is about a  20 minute from the school. It’s really beautiful.
