That's my World! Dry and Wet
The year is starting to propel us into the hot season. The fields are dry, the sky is obscured by dust. I took this picture of sugar palms in a very dry field near my house in Salavan. I walked into the field, behind someone's house and walked back and forth to get the angle right.
As I returned to the road, with its one-inch layer of dust, I heard a noise behind me. A woman came out of the house I had been standing behind. I guess she heard me and came out to see who it was. She looked shocked to see it was a foreigner!
Some of the fields are irrigated.
The fields in the front are not. Not all fields are irrigated, just enough to farm and to conserve water. Most of the small streams have dried up.
When the heat gets to be too much, we can stop by the Thad Lor waterfall.
That's my world, and my contribution to That's My World!
