Lunch, 午餐, Mittagessen, Le Dejeuner, Almuerzo, обед

I recently sat down for lunch with some students and realized that I was sitting with students from eight different countries. We had a student from each of the following countries: China, Turkey, Spain, Russia, Germany, France, Mexico, and the United States. It reminded me of the excitement I felt when visiting a youth hostel in Europe when I was seventeen. It is exciting to live in rural New Hampshire and yet also live in an international community.
