Rice Fields and Coconut Water

We could have hiked through the rice fields at Tegalalang like the people shown in the middle photo. However, it was hot and we were shepherding our three-year-old, who is  going through a dislike-of-walking-and-heat stage. So instead, we appreciated the fields while sitting on a balcony and drinking coconut water.

The couple who ran the restaurant/balcony expressed amazement that Theo was three; apparently he looks about five by Indonesian standards. Of course, everyone who tells us that they have grandchildren here looks extremely young to us, so apparently the age confusion goes both ways.
