308. Blue skies
From Pa Main it was just one more day to Bario. Bario is the main settlement in the Kelabit Highlands, with a little more than 1000 inhabitants. There is no road connecting Bario to the coastal region so everything has to be flown in. Despite that, there were actually six trucks going back and forth on the single road connecting Bario with the nearby villages.
    The area around Bario is dotted with rice fields, or paddy fields. The name to change according to the state of the rice plant.
