Summer Solstice and Mountain Marshlands

There's not much to tell from the week except that it rained every day. This is good for our fields, ok for our spirits, but bad for our motivation to get out of bed in the mornings...

We did manage to make some rice husk charcoal in the field one morning
We've just returned from Leo's cottage (do you remember? we visited for a weekend last autumn)! We three Knights plus Leo celebrated the Summer Solstice at a festival in the mountains. It was a first for all of us to see Japanese Rastafarians! ARI was selling summer pork soup, oishi. And Kim found a swing!
Shopping for the weekend
In a house at the festival we saw this skeleton and this sleeping man.
Selling soup!

Visiting a shrine
Leo translating Kim's fortune (it was good!)
We visited a corral (it was not "golden")

We also enjoyed Sukiyaki, again! And Sunday we adventured to Mountainous Marshlands, Numaparra, and had a picnic. It was a wonderful weekend with no rain!

This next week we will be finishing our June rotations and gearing up for the hot summer months to come.
