The road was a bit challenging at some points, eventually you have to give up on any hope of not getting muddy.
Below is an irrigation canal dug around a rice field to keep water in it throughout the dry season. There is a larger pond/basin nearby that water is pumped from to the fields. It looks simple enough but most farms don't have any irrigation in the poorer villages so they are only able to grow rice once a year instead of 2-4 times.
Some recently constructed country homes/shelters have popped up as the land has become more developed and filled in and more people migrate/settle in the area.
Then the storm started to build up later in the afternoon.
In the evening we had our friends over for pizza and a movie night.
It was a delicious pizza made by these lovely ladies.
