Mr. Song Harvesting Wheat in Kansas
Mr. Tran Song, in country representative for the Library Project of Vietnam came to Kansas in 2006 and experienced a little of our harvest.
A big thank you to Kate Hildebrand of Edmond Oklahoma who gave me pointers on how to add video to my travel blogs. I am making a couple of entries to try it out before I go traveling again.
Thanks Kate and thank you Mr. Song for what you do.

Mr Song and the Harvest
I can't believe our friend got to harvest wheat and i grew up in Kansas without ever driving a combine. I've scooped wheat , beans and corn but never harvested. Kent, you have a heart of gold. Hope you are feeling better. Rotary awarded me the Silent Rotarian Award 2 weeks ago. I was shocked to receive it, just doing the right thing like all of us. Lucky Mr. Song, we live in a Greaaaaatttttt! Country!!!!!!! Mike Meyer

I've never done it before
I've never seen wheat before, let alone driving a combine and harvesting wheat!!!!!!!!!! Kent Converse gave me an oppotunity to see the US from another angle. I felt so familiar with the smell of straw and grain and soil ... the smell that reminded me of Vietnam. Was it strange that a Vietnamese "country pumpkin" experienced harvesting wheat in Kansas state?
