after the beach we headed to the padi fields, flat lands as far as the eyes can see. we had wanted to see the golden padi fields (almost harvesting time) but was told that the farmers delayed planting as there weren't enough water this season. we weren't disappointed, the green "sea" was equally beautiful! there was a big temple right in the middle of the fields, the contrast was spectacular. the gods & deities must be working hard to bless and protect the farmers of the area.
