Swimming in a rice canal was an event my whole family enjoyed.  Excess water from a rice field emptied into a large metal cylinder, and formed swift currents.  Floating down this current was the highlight of our outing.  Whirlpools were common where water was released at the cylinder's end, but beyond these whirlpools, calmer waters enabled swimming.


  1. Hi, Joelle! I've never seen such a unique blog concept! It's artistic, entertaining and informative and I have decided to follow you. A child of the 50s and a teen of the 60s, I host a blog that celebrates the greatest music and memories spanning 60 years. If you enjoy listening to the soundtrack of our youth and appreciate humor, hospitality and genuine friendship, then I invite you to come over and get to know me and my circle of friends around the world. Thank you, Joelle!

  2. I'm glad you like Gumbo Girl - sounds as if we have alot in common. The music of that period was most memorable, so I will be sure to check on your site. Thank you for "following".
