Thanks to everyone who posted such interesting comments yesterday. Here is another from the tripod.
Sadly, this old house is falling into disrepair. You can see that on one part of the house the roof tiles have begun to cave in and collapse. The small shed with wooden siding in the foreground is where the farming tools were kept, and you see that the old rice fields -- with a little rocked-in stream through the middle providing water -- are now just grass.
