    The only main exercise is walking down to turn it around. The way she points her finger reminds me of a teacher eions ago ...& not strict enough to be like my sister in law who lays down the law to us out-laws. ha ha!

    What a pity they haven't worked out how to make it turn at the end, and do the whole series of canals. I suspect putting curved banks at the end, and/or a curved guide on the front of the raft might let it run and turn into adjacent canals automatically. Perhaps even building the raft wit 45 or 60 degree pipe fittings at the front would be enough to make it turn.

    Yeah, I think the area for growing takes precedence over labour unlike the west. This does show some automation towards loss of jobs.
