Exchange Students: A New Chapter

Bruna left at the beginning of June. I will miss the thick Latin accent crying my name as she greeted me so warmly these past six months. On behalf of Rotary, I hosted a small going away party. We had a wonderful spread and two apple pies, which is Bruna's favorite American dish. On the day she left, she left her mark on the graffiti rock outside the high school.

In late July, I will send off Angie to Denmark. Her Danish is coming along wonderfully, and she has corresponded with her new host parents about her new school and town. In August, we welcome Sagar from India. He is from the same area as my brother in law, which came in handy when I called Suketu to ask how to pronounce our new student's name.
