Why the meat is much more expensive

Written by Antje on June 8th 2014 22:08

Today, our household help told us that at the moment, fish doesn’t cost the usual 120 taka per kilo (€1,20) but 160 taka. When I asked her if there was an explanation, she said that it is because of the harvest. Most of the rice has been harvested so now people have money to spend. I suppose this is the free market......
Below you’ll see a few pictures of the harvest. Because people have been busy working the land, it has been less busy in the hospital. Also, it seems like the rainy season started suddenly this past week and that also makes the hospital less busy.

Carrying the rice
The first few weeks of May, I had my vacation. A lady friend friend (who also works at LAMB) and I went to Malaysia, to the beach of Perhentian island. A time to rest and do some snorkeling. I had never been snorkeling yet, and was very impressed with what I saw in the water. We saw large water turtles, three sharks, and a lot of smaller fish with very many colors. Unfortunately, we didn’t have an underwater camera.... It was good to be away from the business of daily affairs!
