Become a Host Family in North Carolina, or another state… we are.

Are you interested in culture or travel? What if I told you that you could experience a culture and stay at home? That’s right!

 

In North Carolina (even other states), CIEE is in need of host families, ordinary people like you and me, who would like to impact someone’s life or get to know a new culture and open their doors to the world to a privileged child.

 

Did you know we will be hosting a Congress Bundestag kid this year, from Germany? Oops, that was a surprise :O

 

If your even the slightest bit interested or think, hey that’s a cool idea, let CIEE know. It will impact your life and most certainly for the better. And they will be happy to assist you with any questions or concern you might have ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

If your interested, please complete the form below and I will forward all the emails to the CIEE Coordinator, Ms. Stanley.

As I said, if your slightly interested, just send an email. You cannot even begin to believe how incredible this would be for you and your kids or other members.

 

I know my host-family in Germany thought it was definitely an experience of a lifetime. My host mom even applied as a local coordinator in Germany and said she would host other students again.

 

I’m telling you, it will be an awesome experience.. Just send an email below.

 

Have a great day,

Igor

Thanksgiving in Germany

Today I made a traditional American Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. We had pumpkin pie, lemon meringue pie, a chicken (no turkeys here ๐Ÿ˜€ ) with potatoes, a nice salad (cranberries, hazelnuts, and an orange; it is delicious by the way), mashed potatoes and gravy, apple cider, wine, and 4 little chocolate turkeys. It tasted great! I played American Christmas songs, like in the movies, and it was wonderful. It is also my host dad’s birthday today, so it worked out quite nicely. ย  thankgiving1 thankgiving3 thankgiving4

We had much fun and listened to American music and celebrated! Oh, and did I say the food tasted GREAT!!! ย  PS: Funny Story today: I was heading to school today, and was talking to may dad on the phone. All of the sudden, my train came and I was quite far away. I took off in a sprint and ran down the stairs, around the corner (tunnel) and plowed through two police men. One was thrown on the ground straight on his back, the other almost knocked back too. They were both screaming at me and I kept running up and in the train. I then took my coat, hat, and scarf off, and rotated them inside out so they wouldn’t realize it was me if they came after me. BUT, I got on the train to school ๐Ÿ˜€ ย  And two recipes if your interested:

Salad:

1/2 cup Hazelnuts chopped into small parts

1 can Cranberries

1 orange peeled cut into small parts a tiny bit of sugar (a teaspoon)

Lemon Meringue Pie: For Germans (in metric system) and Americans (in cups, etc.) LemonMeringuePie.pdf

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone and take care!

Best,
