Rice field walk

We started our walk from a small village of Juwet, at the nicest point of the village itself with its stunning view of the rice terraces that is sloping down to the small river. We walk up to the village and watching the women of the village were doing their laundry along the canal of the irrigation and also a man that was fishing by the river but was only catching a tiny fish.
A short stop we made in the village where we saw a couple Chameleon was fighting in the bush and took some pictures and video if them. It was such bless to see that on our walk.  
I was also happy to have a chance to introduce Belinda how to make bubbles from the stem of the castor oil tree. She had such a great fun doing it by herself and have her dad took some pictures when she was blowing the bubbles.
We then continued our walk through the village and sharing about the local crops along the way and also having a little chat with some school boys of the local village who were riding around on their bikes during the break time of their class. They were riding around us while saying a few words in English trying to have a little conversation and being naughty by saying, “money, money”.

We left the village and walk out into the big paddy field where we could view the central mountain range and also the active volcano in a distance. The day was so sunny and was a bit hot for us but we kept walking through the big paddy field while sharing about the rice farming and also the irrigation system of the local Subak while Taking some great pictures of the scenery over the terraces and some of the local farmers that were busy with their work.
We crossed the river by a big dam and up the other side of another rice paddy with more stunning view of the terraces along the small river that runs in between.  We followed the wet track along the dike of the paddy field and practicing our balance not to fall in to the muddy field.  As the day was getting so hot, we made a little stop and rest by a Bale in the middle of the paddy field where we could enjoy some nice breeze and also a great view all over the field.  Some of the farmers were still busy on the field planting the young baby rice and some are busy with hoeing the flooded field for the transplantation of the new seeds.  
After a little bit of rest, we walked on through the little road in the middle of the paddy field, along the irrigation canal until we got to the main Subak temple where we finished our walk and waiting for our pick up.
On the drive back to the hotel, we made a little D-Tour around Taman Village and seeing the old Banyan tree on the outer courtyard of the village temple. It was the highlight of our walk for the day.
