On March 17th the school hosted a fantastic international festival. There were booths set up around the sports field representing more than 25 countries. The booths featured food, clothing, and crafts from the featured country. The kids also could take passports around and get them stamped for answering questions about the geography or history. They also had games, crafts and other activities for the kids. There was a stage that had dance and music performances as well. I'm glad I came hungry because I was able to sample food from around the globe: I had a delicious plate of Indian food, dim sum, a French baguettes with cheese, treats from various parts of Africa, pizza for the kids, and finally a cup of Turkish coffee and some baklava. I left stuffed.
Here are just a few of the many photos I took that day.
And finally on the walk home we experienced some of the local culture. My youngest got to ride on a vegetable vendor's donkey.
