Around the World in 80 Minutes

Around the World in 80 Minutes

Around the world in 80 minutes? Yes, I have done that! 🙂

The International Fellows from the USAWC Class of AY2014 hosted the ‘Know Your World,’ wherein 77 International Fellows from 67 nations set up displays emphasizing their respective nation’s culture, food, tourism and customs to the Carlisle, PA community.  The annual event provides an interactive and dynamic platform for the said community to see and experience different cultures  from across the world. It is a wonderful event where you enjoy and learn at the same time.

Souvenir sling bag from UAE, cute keychain from Japan, nuts from Brazil, chocolate from Macedonia, fruit punch from El Salvador, and of course, lumpiang shanghai (spring rolls) from the Philippines. Those are my favorite thing/food that I had from the event.

Here are some of the photos that I got from the event:

  1. Your pictures are so amazing & wholesome. To see so many smiling faces with glorious food is so humbling. Your energy flows across the four corners of the world with fortified love and passion. May I take this opportunity to send you and your family blessings, peace, comfort and joy xxx

  2. What an awesome post you created here Bela!

    Wish I could have fit inside your pocket and had a bird’s eye view of everything you saw.
