We went out to the the farm yesterday to find the usually dry but low lying farmland to the rear of our block is now a lake. The water has actually come from inland waterways releasing water and not excessive rain and I can only assume the water views have increased the value of our land exponentially. As I gut grass and Leakhana tendered the BBQ, a farmer set fishing nets on the block next to ours ( surreal ) and a bunch of laborers toiled in steaming sunshine and knee deep water cutting all the cassava on the block behind us. VERY hard and nasty work. In the time we were there – about 4 hours – the water moved about a meter further across our land so i assume today it is a tad wet over there.
