My 2nd post for RICEFIELD FARMER.

Taken @ Sta. Cruz Laguna ricefield.

Noticed two farmers carrying a 60 kilo sack of rice, had a small chat with them at their drop point.

Remus: How far did you carry those?
Farmer: Don't know how far since its not a straight line, we have to criss-cross on non-mud pathways. But we do know its a 30 minute walk carrying this.
Remus: Oh I see... So why not use a water buffalo to assist you?
Farmer: (Smoked a cigarette) Its not possible, due to irrigation along the way, you need even ground for that to work. It could have helped us carrying at least 6 sacks.
Remus: You carried those without any footwear?
Farmer: I have my slippers but its in my back pocket, Its better wearing none since it would just get stuck in the mud.
Remus: Tough work huh?
Farmer: We can handle the burden but its really the heat that bothers... Got to go back and fetch more.. See you..
Remus: See you then in the next hour.

@Dinner that evening.. I did some contemplation on the hardship of farmers in getting those food/rice into our plates… I salute them.
