This video is to accompany my journal entry for Jan. 19, which is about the foreign students who lived with us for 10 years. This particular video shows Rafael, the leader of a group of students from Chile, who lived with us for 3 weeks, and the going-away party for his group and the families who hosted them.
Hosting foreign students was really a wonderful time for us. Over 10 years there were some 70 people from 14 different countries who came through our house for stays ranging from one night to 3 years.
We learned so much. Some were absolutely wonderful and are still friends; others were not so nice, but I would do the whole thing again in a heartbeat, if I still had kids living at home.
