The rain has arrived a few days ago. Nights after nights of rain have transformed the surrounding here.
The new drain system helps contains some of it but it is still not enough. The main road is once again transformed in a river with a strong current of water coming from the surrounding fields.
The pond is completely full to the delight of the children and small fishes and frogs can be seen everywhere. It is festival time for the plants, trees and any kind of overgrowing greeneries, while flocks of green parrots cross the sky with a strident cry and the first teals turn around whistling. The air is of course heavy and wet but the nature and the skies are wonderfully beautiful. Here comes the time of the monsoon and the plantation of rice. The fields behind Rinpoche's Stupa are being prepared with the buffalos and women have already started planting the rice.
Two of the guests present at the moment had the chance to give it a try and enjoyed it greatly. Please see the photos.
