Personal highlights

  1. Rice Paddy: visiting some farmers outside of Yogyakarta to learn more about rice
  2. Seeding rice: getting dirty in the rice paddy field and trying to help some farmers
  3. Germination: growing seeds in a small plot and then replanted with greater separation
  4. Hard work: I've learned that planting and harvesting rice is back-breakingly hard work
  5. Indonesia: one of the world's top 10 rice producing nation as well as consumers
