West goes East: The lives and adventures of a Californian couple living in Seoul

Here are a couple of shots of terraced rice paddies. They were all over the island and in nearly all the mountain valleys we drove through. Wikipedia, the source of all 21st century knowledge, states that rice is very water tolerant but that the reason it is grown in paddies is to drown weeds that would otherwise compete with it.
Here is a close up of rice. Probably pretty close to harvest but we don't know how close.
