Home is the Daughter, Home from NZ (and OZ too!)

Andrea is Back!

Daughter-person returned from her People to People Student Ambassadors Tour to New Zealand and Australia. We are delighted to have home the girl we sent out, and the young woman, assured and self confident beyond belief, that we got back. Her mother got Fendi and opals. And I have a left handed boomerang to figure out how to use. It is most impressive how well she did, and she really is quite a different young woman.
Partly it was experiences like this, climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge (she's the one in the hat in the front row...) and going to luge in Rotorua, and visiting and overnighting with the Maori, and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef...and being a representative of the best her country has to offer, I think, that made her change greatly and for the better in three weeks away from home.

Can't tell I'm proud, can you??
