パンだけ辛い、ね。

This man was harvesting the rice in a set of fields very near my apartment. I asked if I could take some photos, and he gladly said yes. We struck up a pleasant conversation and I noted how sad I was that the neighborhood rice fields were disappearing at such an alarming pace and he agreed. He wondered what people in the future were going to eat. As he looked over his little oasis of rice hemmed in by houses he confided, 「パンだけ辛い、ね」 Eating only bread would be dreadful!
