Our new, wonderful student has arrived from Austria--Christina! She arrived bearing gifts. It is obvious that much careful thought went into choosing these gifts. First, there was an array of Austrian rocks and crystals for my rock loving husband. Second, there was a beautiful, handprinted Czech glass vase for me. Then, there was a enormous pile of chocolate and sweets for all of us! What a thoughtful gift :)
Hosting exchange students is a great joy for us. We look forward to getting to know Christina and learning about Austria--one of my favourite countries.
Welcome to Canada Christina!
