My favorite pastime is traveling rural roads and marveling at how beautiful nature is. It’s a pleasure that costs absolutely nothing. The best things are free, and all of that.
The Philippines is primarily an agricultural country. Rice fields are everywhere. All of them are uniquely different. Some are very organized, proportionally segregated and individually labeled. Some are random, a bit of terraces here, a scarecrow there.
But all of them look beautiful, especially at sundown. I love to see the sun’s fading rays peeking through the trees. Or the glint of gold bouncing off the rice paddies.
I love the wisps of clouds that float serenely across the sky. And the myriad of colors that burst when the sun starts to say good night.
He says I’m a country girl at heart. Maybe it’s true.
