Pray for Rain

Over the last few days Two Thousand City was really hot, and really dry. Going past the rice fields I was getting worried about the lack of water. Normally you see water in the field until the price plants are at least fully grown, usually until just a few weeks before harvesting, but not at the moment. The ground is moist, but very view field have the shine of water in them.

Why would I worry about this, you might ask? Well, I come from Africa where we always worry about the rain. Maybe not Africans at the equator, but in the rest of Africa we do. Also, if the rice crops are bad it means the rice price goes up, and in Korea that means the price of everything else goes up.

At least we had a bit of rain this morning and there is supposed to be rain for the next week or so. Let’s just hope it will be enough.
