Bicycle ride through the rice paddies

Bicycle ride through the rice paddies

 

The country lanes were like frayed sisal rope, threading their way between water logged rice paddies and under canopies of leafy trees.  We freewheeled our bicycles between the narrow straits and peddled furiously over the sun bleached bridges.  The sun devoured us under it’s all consuming gaze.  Jasmine rice, also known as fragrant Thai rice has different stages of harvesting.  The nutty flavour and rich aroma is dependent on when it is harvested.  Rice is both a delicacy and a staple food in Thailand.
