On Friday, The Washington Center had its International Festival with interns from all over the world sharing their cultures.
First, students set up tables to display stuff about their countries- here is an altar from Mexico. I remember making these in high school for Day of Dead!
The tables also had samples of food. It was awesome! I tried food from Belgium, South Korea, Mexico, Panama, Kyrgyzstan, India, China, Canada, and more.
Mexico had chips, salsa, and guacamole- the guacamole was so good! Belgium had some sort of cookie cake, South Korea had a cinnamon tea and a rice ball that tasted like a granola bar, and Canada had maple syrup, of course haha. There was a lot more food, but I can't remember all of the names :(
Next was the part I was looking forward to the most- the talent show! I actually kept asking people when it was supposed to start because I couldn't wait.
The guy above is a dancer from South Korea and the group below from India did Bollywood dancing, including dancing to the song Jai Ho (from Slumdog Millionaire)!
I could not believe how talented everyone was! A bunch of students from the other counties danced and sang too. They all had amazing voices and the dances looked like a lot of fun.
What are your favorite foods from other countries?
Do you know any cool dances from other countries?
