Peanuts

As we travelled down the river I had noticed small groups of people apparently planting something in the sandbars along the banks. Just what the two women on the left are doing here. The rainy season is finished and the river will rise no higher for a while so they are planting ground-nuts in these barren looking sand bars. Astonishingly they will flourish.
