The 力阿卡铁牛 is introduced and designed to replace the real cow or ox.

Let’s move out.

They used to be the tool for faming rice or any crops.  

Each cart can take 6 to 8 person.


We stopped by this small farm stalls and eat some of their farming products.


Old tree.  300 years old.


The local tour guide explains.  Please protect our forrest.


Very nice view.


Learning the history of the tree.


Oh.. got water.


Got water, got kids.


Kids are having fun playing with the water.

I don’t know what they are playing, but more kids coming.  One started it, and every one follow.  That is the game.  That is childhood.

This is how they start the engine.

In this town, there are a lot of mosaic art pieces.


Like this is the name of the bridge.  So, they use a very unique way to present it.


Quite nice.  Simply says the boat can park here.


Crossing the bridge.


Nice bridge.

It’s time to fill up my stomach.  美女,三条春卷, Please.

The kids now on to the swing.

I love the fresh air.  The slightly cold weather.  The wet drizzling.
