Feast of Nations

This Saturday was the annual Feast of Nations event at the local college. Here are some pictures of the friends we saw there, and the things being done.

Mathuri was busy selling tickets. She is from Malaysia. For a neat picture of the world's largest flower (which grows in Malaysia) check out this link.

All dressed up! India, Malaysia, Nepal and other countries have very colorful clothing! Above, is sari material.

Olivia and Florence are from Africa. Olivia actually had two different dresses she wore that day which were both really neat! Here is a great site with fun activities, recipies and facts about Africa. For instance, did you know that a Zebra's stripes are as original as our fingerprints?!

We tried different foods from other countries. For some good Indian recipies, try this web site. If you would like to try recipies from all different countries, I recommend this book "Extending the Table" by Joetta Handrich Schlabach.

We also met up with Eleana. Everytime we see her, we love to share laughs and talk about places we'd like to visit. Here is a neat place to visit in Minnesota: North Shore Waterfalls.

Downstairs, they had kids carnival games set up and Henna hand painting....(a little messy though)
