A Cultural Exchange Package from our Friends in Idiazabal, Cordoba in Argentina!

We are so excited about the package that arrived from our friends in Idiazabal!! The students wrote to us about many of the features of the Argentinean culture. They sent pictures, music and videos on CDs along with brochures, school banners, a mate cup and straw, local recipes and rosaries from the Jesuit GuaranĂ­ Missions! The Mission is where our current Pope did his work prior to becoming the leader of the Catholic faith. Check out this display of all the goodies they sent!

Here's a close up of the rosaries!

Here's the mate cup and straw along with an explanation and a recipe for empanadas!

And finally, a school banner that celebrates their first 50 years!!! We wish them many, many more successful years of educating the children of Idiazabal!!!

Our Spanish III students are hoping to send videos of school life in Houston to our Argentinean friends before we leave for summer break next week! We have all learned so much this year through all of our exchanges via email, Skype and even mail! It is my hope that someday we will meet in person, in fact it is our ultimate goal!!
