Wonderful, idyllic, hard work and lovely food I'm sure but so admirable.
Will you be able to kill a chicken when the time comes though?
I love the sharing of the village it is rather like the allotments here in the UK, we all share over growth and swap.
When I was up in Isaan in the north east of Thailand they would pump out the water from the paddy fields and collect up all the catfish then sell them back at the village, after sizing them. All we'd get to eat were the sardine sized ones.
Little things like that are real life. The wild honey bee hive, wild mushrooms all memorable.
