    A family member of mine is traveling to Bali, Indinesia, and as I was learning about the country from the comfort of my computer, I saw a cool picture.

    We know these guys can build a wall that will hold a load! Even grow cool green crap on it.

    now that is original and cool looking. Hope you don't mind but I just turned that picture into my desktop background. Any objections?

    Looks like rice. If you look by the edges you will see it is planted in rows and they are filled with water.

    I thought it was some type of crop, but what makes the walls? Wood?

    Looks like they are carved right into the mountainside somehow, or made out of stone. Do a google on rice terraces. Pretty unique, talk about utilizing your surroundings.

    it is rice, rice is one of the few crops that needs/can stay saturated like that.

    It is indeed rice. Amazing how much weight all that water has got to push on the wall. Dont know how theyre constructed, but they are definetly organic. Probably carved right out of the hillside as Aponte said.
