Village Activity…

Internet was down for most of the day and it has finally kicked back on and is working. I am sitting in front of a fan and trying to cool down, for it is hot here and it feels really good. I have been cleaning all morning and early afternoon and decided that is about all I will do for awhile. I am tired…

Therefore I will write a little bit and tell you what has happened here today…

Took this image of the bell tower and now you can see what I talked about yesterday in that post…

Then as I was out and about, up from the river area came lots of people. They were following a group of monks and they were on their way to the monastery up the hill…

I stayed my distance and I could tell it was serious stuff. Especially if they came all this way to this village. Most of the people walked, therefore, they came across the river from the big villages and that is a pretty good walk. It is also hot. A couple of them stopped me after the main body of people were out of sight and asked me where everyone went, I pointed up and they trudged on. They looked like they were happy and glad to be there, they made it. I am stunned when I see 80 plus year old women walking miles and miles in this heat and never bat an eye…

This next picture is a dead tree I found as I walked Boza. The woodpeckers are thick this year and the ants and termites in the trees are history. I found trees all over that look like this as there seems to be more woodpeckers than I have ever seen down here. Wood shavings are deep around this tree…

I will end with this photo. The fishing frog pond view of the village…
