After a great night at Kate Hildebrand's family we traveled through Texas and Louisiana to the little town of Converse.
The town was founded by Col. James Converse who owned a lot of land in the area. It was a thriving boom town at one time. The financial center of town was the Converse State Bank. It enjoyed an oil boom. Recently, it has been declining but still sports a great little High School.
This is my 12 visit to Vietnam
My current mission in Vietnam is going to the home villages of all my neices and nephews that have helped me in Vietnam
In 2005 I biked from Hanoi to Saigon. Probably the greatest trip I ever experienced.
I look forward to returning to Vietnam and enjoying the people and land of Vietnam.
I will be staying with my former Rotary Exchange Student Trang and her husband Huan and daughter Sarah.
I keep a bike at Trang's house and will be biking around Saigon on short trips.
