From Elder Gorringe on GROWING RICE
|A rice field|
|Tying the rice stalks in bundles by hand|
|Cutting the rice by hand|
|Drying the rice on the road|
|Close up of the parlay, unmilled rice drying|
Yes, they use the road as a rice drying bed. There is no other place for it. This is the highway between San Marcelino and San Antonio. Yes the drying of the parlay does cause traffic problems and does sometimes get run over especially by busses.
I hope this gives you a little insight into life for many in the Philippines.
