Some of you may know that we often get flooding when typhoons come, even though we live on the top floor of our building. Last time we had three to five centimeters of water on the floor throughout our house. Last Saturday we finally got new windows in. Just in front of the old ones though! Hopefully this means no more flooding!


That’s a lot of ocean out there! You will forgive me that the horizon isn’t level, won’t you? I do get up at 5am to do these blog posts.


Some of the dark places are actually rice patties. These two pictures show the view from the art room. The window sills have since been cleaned.
