Don't underestimate the small and the frail...

If you can think back to our post about Hue where we mentioned the most amazing lady that showed us all the equipment at the rice museum, here are some photos of her...

This is a machine they used to drain the rice paddies - a bailing machine.

This contraption (not that you can see much of it) was used to de-husk the rice before milling.

Here she is showing us how to grind the rice down...

Cooling yourself off after a hard day at work.

Here you can see how tiny she was!
