Wander Pi Wednesdays: Portrait of a Life Long Rice Farmer

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

Amidst the busy markets and bustling streets of Hoi An, tourists can find themselves touring the rice farms and meeting the farmers who provide kilos upon kilos of rice for the local families. This is Mama, the proprietor of her family’s rice business. She was kind enough to give us a full demonstration of the rice farming process which she continues for up to twelve hours at a time. While I watched her sort and grind the husks, several families visited to drop off their own bags of unprocessed rice, 5 kilos of which could feed a family for a week.
