R is for a run-down hut in the middle of a rice field. A rural scene captured on the way to visit relatives in Valladolid. I imagine a farmer eating his lunch in this hut, relaxing with a mug of coffee after a grueling day, and resting his eyes on fields of green and gold, anticipating a good harvest. I sometimes long for the rustic tranquility of a simple country life, away from the noise and haste of city life. To be surrounded by nature's bounty and kind, simple folks is absolutely Arcadian to me---it rejuvenates the spirit.
