traffic clamor either; most of the vehicles are cars, rickshaws, bicycles and a small number of buses. This factor also contributed to the relaxed atmosphere we were happy to encounter. Even in the fields, no one seemed particularly “on fire” with work habits. The field dogs and cats too were not very hurried in their hunts through the paddies for rats, mice and snakes. On the beaches people moved like slow flowing syrup as they ambled along the shore. The groundskeepers at the resorts moved steadily at their tasks, but they did not speed up when other folks went by. All in all, it was a comfortable tempo at which to wind down from a very busy previous period oftravel.
