The air is clear and the sun bright, with tall trees surrounding. Over the rise on which you are now travelling, you can see the sparkling waters of the river that has carved this valley. Down in the valley itself you see sunlight glinting from waters as they gurgle below; there are houses built on stilts in myriad colours, rising up from this pretty blue pool. All around it is lush green fields and fruit orchards for as far as your eye can see, broken here and there by small rock escarpments and shrubbery.
