Bali Rice Paddies



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I was able to spend several days on the island of Bali in Indonesia in 1987. One of the many memorable things we saw were these terraced rice paddies in the mountainous interior of the island.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

That is a beautiful image of terraced paddyields!
This is quite similar to upcountry rice paddies in sri Lanka!

We also have rice terraces in Banaue. Like these, gorgeous and amazing feats of labor.

Oh my, we were in Bali in 1988, such a beautiful place. We loved it, thanks for the memory.

(PS Betsy wants to go on the riverboat cruise again in case you didn't know!)

That's an amazing feat of agriculture! These farmers know how to get the most out of their limited resources.

That is an interesting picture today. I have never seen rice patties like this. Great showing. That is firewood, but thought it looked like a dog's head.

That's what I always liked about Indonesia: the rice paddies!! They are typical of Indonesia. But I don't want to go back, for the bad memories I have of that country.

The uniqueness of Indonesian society, we feel not eat if we have not 'met' the rice, though already eat 5 pieces of breads!.
