Feel Good Friday

When we think rice, we think plain, bland, and boring.  Like a side dish of white rice.

But in a land where there are 5 words for what we call "rice,"  it's obvious there's something more to it.  Menus offer dozens of rice dishes.  Temples are covered with rice offerings.  People wear rice on their forehead as a blessing. In Indonesia, rice is life.

And we found ourselves admiring "rice" for hours on end...
