Trip around the World with Sina

Sina, our Finnish friend and colleague has been staying with us off and on for over a month now, and it has been great having her. She has also travelled to over 70 countries in her lifetime, so we decided to have her give us a "trip around the world" through her experiences: Here she is (with Ljilja translating):  (somehow all the pics of the crowd came out fuzzy: I was trying to take them in between moving the slides along, and clearly multitasking isn't my strong point...)
She shared stories from some of the many countries she has been to. It really was a very interesting presentation, with lots of interesting facts and interaction. Here are Ljilja and Sina posing with one of the pictures she showed us. It is from India of Sina while she was in her role of Sponsorship Child Coordinator with Fida International:  (she is now the coordinator for Child Sponsorship in the Balkans - which is why she is based now in Kosovo and spent a month here)
After the presentation we had a challenging quiz which was done in groups: (and Ljilja took these photos... no fuzziness!)
 As you can see, it was also really fun: 
And after the prizes were handed out, we enjoyed food from all over the world: From South Africa some Kudu and Ostrich biltong, wasabi nuts from Japan, salmiakki from Finland, Swiss chocolate, Kosovar pralines, and some delicious Spanish sweet delicacy which probably went done the best (after the Swiss chocolate of course...)
Most people did try everything, but some (cleverer ones) stayed clear of the wasabi and salmiakki as the strange taste is not to their liking! But we did have something for everyone - and you can see that people were enjoying the different delicacies...
It was a great evening, and those that came had a great time! Well done Sina!
