  1. die kurze Beschreibung macht das sehr schön komponierte Bild
    noch viel interessanter.

  2. It remains to be seen whether the work of farmers is fairly rewarded. Around here, a kilo of rice costs less than €0.90
    To get here at this price, this means that farmers probably earn little more than €0.10 per kilo. Of the 20 million production, only an income of about 2 million remains.
