In the heat.
In the middle of the padi fields (rice fields) there is right now a festival of kites going on.
The grand price is rm 3000 wich is more than a months salary here.
It is lasting for two days and of course there is vendors here as well to provide food and drinks for the spectators.
Musik is loud, malaysian or 80′s…
It’s so hot that yesterday I got sun burned sitting in the shade!
Today I’ve been sitting out for a while when there was clouds but now I am back in the shade.
Suddenly there are a tromb whirling the dry mud in the padi field. And another.
Zan is a judge in the festival so he us standing all day out in the fields. In the heat!
Fun tho because I am the only mat salleh here so even the local politician came to talk to me.
I love the simpleness with these festivals. No fuss.
This is the real Langkawi that not many tourists see. :)
