In Laos we all decided to work on a rice farm. First we walked through a whole lot of mud.
Here are pictures of Levi and my Mom in the muddy rice paddies. It was like we had mud shoes!
Next we plowed with the water buffalo.
Here I am with the buffalo pulling the plow. Her name is Suzuki.
Then we planted the rice seeds.
Next we learned how to get the rice out after it grows. We tied rice plants in bunches and whacked the bunches on a big board to get the rice pods off the rice plants.
We also learned how to make rice flour and how to cook rice.
We ate sticky rice and the grown ups drank rice wine.
Working on a rice farm is hard work but fun and muddy.
