a rice field of Berau

I note Berau as one of oldest city in Kalimantan as well as endowed by rich natural resources city, such coal and rainforest timber.

Instead of that, Berau's government is trying to develop its agriculture by backing up program on food crops.

Here some irrigated ricefields of Berau. Nice views under blue sky!
