Although UNC Asheville is a small school and does not therefore host as many international students as other UNC schools do, the international community here is amazing!And, because our school is fairly small, it is really easy to get to know all sorts of people, including international students. Yesterday, for example, I was invited to have lunch with a group of Korean and Hmong students that I've gotten to know this semester. Everyone joined to make traditional Korean and Vietnamese dishes, and we all had a lot of fun.Although I was really only able to make myself useful by peeling potatoes and washing dishes, I had blast, and I am so happy that I was able to spend my afternoon with such a nice group of people.Here are some pictures of the feast we prepared!(Note the 'American' dessert among the spread; one of the best apple pies I have ever tasted, no exaggeration)
Everyone after the meal--what a great group of friends!
