A bit of a longer view than the day before yesterday. I was fascinated by the thatched roofs. The ceiling in our room was open so I could see how the bundles of grasses were wrapped around bamboo stringers and tied. It looks like a lot of work. It rained quite hard a couple of nights we were there but no leaks. I asked one of the staff about the longevity of this roofing material. He said the roof over our room was 15 years old and was scheduled for replacement in the near future. Pretty impressive.
The bamboo screens in the field were to hide, unsuccessfully, the temporary access road, being built by hand, to allow more units to be built to the west, across the river. Once construction is complete, the road will be removed.
Notice the vegetable garden where some of the produce used in the restaurant is grown.
