Some countryside photos

Last weekend while visiting the countryside, we discovered the sunflower field where the sunflowers are taller than me. The view is simply fascinating.

The first time I visited France, I stumbled into hectare of fields like that. People told me they are grasses for cattle. I had hard time understanding it, as why they need to cut those grasses instead of letting cows eat them freshly from the field?

I forgot, grasses dry out during winter, and these are reserves for animals. People even advertise on it for summer festival.

I have a feeling that cows in France are a lot prettier and clearer than those in Malaysia. Not that I have seen many cattle farms in Malaysia, but those I saw in Langkawi were quite dirty.

  3. Hi Keyrol,

    How are you doing in Grenoble? Sure we can be friends, but I'm living in a city close to Nantes in the West part of France, so it might not help much.

    Have you tried to look into the website of Malaysian Student association in France? I was once there and they have a list of student' names so you might find some Malaysians living in the areas close to Grenoble
