Changing seasons

 It must already be very cold in Japan at this time. The temperature is also declining here in Colombo and it takes some courage to shower in the morning with cold water. During daytime, however, it is still warm enough to spend the day in a T-shirt.

 Agricultural season has started in the Northern region, now that the climate has shifted from dry to wet period.

 Agriculture is prosperous in northern Sri Lanka because much of the land is flat. We see many rice fields when we travel to the northern area. Brown paddy fields in which the soil is being turned over, the colors of the farmers’ clothes, healthy rice plants shining green, and the white egrets roaming around looking for something to eat.    

 The colors and the tranquility of the rural areas must be one of the most beautiful scenes in Sri Lanka.
