|256. Paddy fields
Just before Ramudu the first leech stroke. A tiger leech dropped
down on Dimi's back, and it had a bite that she certainly felt! With
"combined forces", we managed to get it off.
The last part of that day's journey took us over the rice fields, or paddy
fields as they are called here, surrounding Ramudu. We made it well before dark!
These are the first guides we have had on all our journeys that could
calculate time and distance according to our (slower) speed and not
only according to their own maximum speed.
