The village was in the midst of the harvest season. As I walked through a small Bangaan village surrounded by terraced rice paddies, I saw bundles of harvested rice ears laid out on the ground to dry in the sun. In the northern part of Luzon, unlike in Japan, rice is not always harvested once a year. It is common for rice to be harvested in two seasons, or even in three seasons. Therefore, just because the harvest season has arrived does not mean that all the ears of rice in the terraced rice paddies surrounding the village have been harvested. It is interesting to note that there are still rice paddies that are not yet ready to be harvested. It must be nice to be able to harvest multiple times, but the hardest part is the harvesting work. Since mechanization is not advanced in this area, these ears of rice were all harvested by hand. It must be quite hard work.
