My first advice would be that you slap whoever gave you this assignment upside the head. If you're going anytime soon, take your longjohns. In warm weather, Nebraska is covered with corn and cows. Right now, probably just cows. However, the people are nice, although you probably should not start a discussion of U of Nebraska football these days. One feature of rural plains and prairie states is the considerable absence of air pollution, except near feedlots, so that landscape photos often show deep blue sky and very little atmospheric perspective.
