Planting rice in Cambodia under storm clouds.

This photo was taken during my service in the Peace Corps in Cambodia. One morning, a friend asked me to accompany her and some other women to plant rice. It was my first time so the others were instructing me on the proper technique. They were often urging me to go take a break--probably because I was going so slow!
