I was also impressed by the beauty of the countryside. Here is a photo taken from the car. The crops in the foreground are rice and corn.
I had a wonderful trip due to the hospitality of my hosts. They will be visiting Sydney in October, and I hope that we can make their visit as enjoyable as mine.
