I find this the most harrowing of Yuli’s pics. The reason you can barely make out the dwellings on the other side of this paddy is because they are not there. Yuli found this scene repeated throughout her drive yesterday. There are no dwellings, and the farmers here, tenant farmers, have no transport, and will be able to retain only 25% of this baby rice crop when it is harvested… in two months. The quake hit at the end of the month, which means they have no money. And no aid has found them thus far.

Pictures from Sat through Monday are below the narrative of the last few days, which is next.
