A POEM A DAY - BOMBA RICE



La Marjal in Pego is an area of wetlands with a nature reserve and rice paddies where the famous 'bomba' rice is grown. This rice is the staple for Valencian paella, a short grain rice perfect for the paella pan. Yesterday I was struck by the vibrancy of the green, stretching for miles to the sea. Swallows swooped over the rice paddies, ducks paddled in the canals and statue still heron flew up into the sky with a crack of their wings.
