Mountains and Rivers

 When I took this picture I was standing at a spot less than a 10 minute walk to the west of my apartment. You can see how close the mountains are, only a couple of kilometers. They and mountains about 10 kilometers to the east protect us from much of the bad weather.
They are still working on the Naka River. The summer before we arrived here two years ago, there was a very bad flood, the worst in many years, so they decided to rebuild most of the banks and deepen the riverbed, plus putting in some dams. The work has been going on continuously since we came.
