A Return from Sweden

 This weekend we have been very lucky to have one of our past Rotary exchange students return to visit us.

 Elsa is a part of our family now after living with us for 3 months in 2002. She bought her boyfriend Per with her. What a nice time we have had.  

The  exchange was a wonderful educational experience for our family and we have made friends forever.  Over time we have had 2 girls from Denmark and one from Germany and one from Sweden( Elsa).  All but one has returned for a visit and the last says she is coming soon. 

 We have had fun eating, drinking, talking and  looking for kangaroos and emus. We have been to a farm and to a trail ride. 

When  you look for everything your town has to offer to show overseas visitors you really take a second look and  appreciate it more.

Family Gathering

A lovely gift from Elsa and Per... Radish girls.

Funny the brand.... by Elsa From Elsa  not the same Elsa  of course.

I made her favourite cookies. Cornflake choc chip cookies.  

They made us a very nice entree - Pear and Haloumi (Paron and Haloumi) So simple  yet so nice.

Breakfast for the tourists at my favourite coffee shop.. Lauren'z .
 I  taught Lauren ( in black) at school, a few years ago now.
The best eggs benedict you will get anywhere....
