We would like to extend a huge THANK YOU very much to all of you who stepped up, one way or the other, and did an amazing job – again – and made the International Fair an incredible event.
Taking a tour around the old gym last Friday, seeing all the stalls – every sight made me feel like I just arrived in a new part of the world – from Australia, to South Africa, to the rain forest in Brazil, to Argentina, to US, to Canada, to Russia, to India, to Japan, to South Korea, to Vietnam, to Greece, to the Netherlands, to Belgium, to Germany, to France, to UK, to Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark) and the old Vikings and even back to the Roman Empire.
Seeing also very “small” countries, measured according to number of families at ACS, such as Iceland (3 families) and Jordan (2 families) having stalls presenting their countries, made me happy!
In total 24 countries, it was truly fantastic what was on display there. Seeing all the beautiful national costumes, tasting treats and seeing all the characteristics of your countries are the very reason for our role as CRG Liaisons!
I wish I had had more time to walk around in relative quietness, most of the time the gym buzzed with activity. I also wish I had had time to get great photos of all of you – I try next time 🙂
