Anyway, they gave presentations to their peers in our school, about their families, school, L.A. and even Mexico, since both kids are Latin American. It was great to learn about how differently we live and yet, how similar we actually are. We learned about the prom and house parties, tostada and cheesecake, electives and detention. They were taken aback to hear that our kids have 17 mandatory classes per year and that they have to read two books a month as their compulsory literature. They liked custard cake and ice cream.
The most enjoyable part of their stay here was the sightseeing in Zagreb. We had so much fun and laughed all the time. The highlight was the visit to the Croatian National Theater, just a while before the beginning of Swan Lake.
