    Exchange Students

    Today was a sad day! An exchange student from my high school is leaving town. I guess her and her family from Switzerland are going to travel around the U.S. in a rented RV (no word on whether Robin Williams is going with).

    Exchange students are awesome though. You can really learn alot about other countries and also alot about your own. Anyone here have any awesome exchange students (or horror stories for that matter)?

    I don't know man....she was from Switzerland. She looked pretty Swiss.

    And I'm not sure I follow on the whole "going with" thing.

    Oh wow, I didn't even consider the possibility of adding "them" onto the end of that sentence.

    Anyhow, she didn't look like Heidi. She was short with brown hair. Her little sister kind of looked like her though (but I don't know how old she was, so I won't go any further with that!)

    Re: Exchange Students

    Yeah, we had several when I was growing up. One of them, a guy from Brazil named Decio, still keeps in contact with our family. We had a student from Canada stay with us for a year as well, Frank.

    Decio came home late one night (we grew up on a farm), and found himself locked out of the house. He couldn't get in, and seeing as how it was in the middle of January, he went out and slept in the barn in the straw, where it was plenty warm. My dad got up the next morning, found him out in the barn, and thought he had gone out to keep an eye on the sows that were having piglets at the time. We gave him crap about it until the day he left! We talk to him every once in a while on the phone.

    Re: Exchange Students

    One of my best friends has housed 2 French students the past two summers. They're actually here right now, staying until July 28th. I havent' met them yet, but she says they're good guys. I know she's enjoyed the experience a lot.

    Re: Exchange Students

    The thing about European exchange students, is that they are taught British English before they come over here. On her first day in our school, one of the exchange students from Italy was asking everyone in our class if they had any "rubbers". After much laughing and clarification, a student informed her that she actually wanted what was called an "eraser"
