Well, it rained last night. This is turning into a pattern. I went with Kuya Wency to Victoria, and a couple of his technicians, and it was just too wet for planting. The place looked like a lake, I think there was a river where there wasn't supposed to be. They're currently draining the research plot as quickly as possible, and planting will probably happen this weekend...if it doesn't rain again.
Here's a few pictures (click to see them full size):
I will miss planting because I will be in Sabang near Puerto Galera. I have been assured, though, that I will have plenty of opportunities to be out planting rice. I was happy to hear that. I want to do it at least once! I'm so grateful for everyone at IRRI, they've all been so nice and helpful!
I move into the dorms tomorrow, which is exciting. I'm going to pack everything up tonight. It will be nice to not have to worry about utility bills, and to have laundry close by. Well, I have a class at 4, so I'm going to head out. Thanks for reading!
