" ...ONLY IN ART DOES IT STILL HAPPEN THAT A MAN WHO IS CONSUMED BY DESIRES PERFORMS SOMETHING RESEMBLING THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THOSE DESIRES AND THAT WHAT HE DOES IN PLAY PRODUCES EMOTIONAL EFFECTS - THANKS TO ARTISTIC ILLUSION - JUST AS THOUGH IT WERE SOMETHING REAL. PEOPLE SPEAK WITH JUSTICE OF THE "MAGIC OF ART" AND COMPARE ARTISTS TO MAGICIANS. ..."

Fishin' in the paddy fields


Fishin' in the paddy fields, originally uploaded by Bеn.

To get rid of poverty, the farmers have started cultivating fish on their paddy fields to maintain their livelihood. Fish breeding in paddy fields encouraged. Considerably raising the per-hectare yield of rice and fish production In the rainy season throughout this region many small fish can be caught in the paddy fields and small ditches: an environment highly familiar to the Lao people. The small fish are used to make a dish called Pa dek. It is a kind of fermented salted fish, and to the people of Laos, this food is second only to rice in importance. The dish is made by mixing together rice bran, fish, and the salt harvested from the earth. The mixture is allowed to stand for over three months and is then ready to eat. A specialty of this region and an extremely important element of the culture.

I think the best way to explore Laos is by bicycle or feet. Meeting friendly Lao people in the small villages along the way and enjoying its countryside. I had to stop many times to make a photo. A beautiful scenery of rice fields next to the limestone hills where the clouds are hanging. I capture this boy fishing while his father was working with his hand tractor nearby Vang Vieng.

Om armoede van de hand te doen, zijn sommige boeren begonnen met het kweken van vissen op hun rijstvelden. Zo hebben de boeren aanzienlijk meer opbrengst per hectare van rijst en vis productie. In het regenseizoen worden in dit gebied vele kleine vissen in de rijstvelden en de kleine beekjes gevangen: De kleine vissen worden gebruikt om een schotel te maken genoemd Pa dek. Het is een soort vergiste gezouten vis. Naast rijst is deze schotel van groot belang voor de inwoners van Laos. De schotel wordt gemaakt door rijst, vis en het zout samen te mengen. Het mengsel moet drie maanden gisten en is dan is het klaar om te eten. Een specialiteit van dit gebied en een uiterst belangrijk element van hun cultuur.
