Episode 109: Where the Water Settles

One of the most beautiful places on earth, the rice terraces of Yuanyang, are a site to behold.  Beyond their striking beauty, they are also an incredible example of sustainability.  The system of terraces has been around for 1300 years and has provided a constant source of rice (and protein) for this area.  The Hani people who farm this way have a commitment to preservation that has resulted in their own ability to survive.
