Travel dreams come true Every year, Lincoln students enjoy the chance to travel to far away places like New York, Paris, Rome, and Washington, D C. During spring break, 14 juniors took off for New York City and Washington, DC, as part of the united Nations Tour sponsored by the UN Association of Greater Des Moines. Selection of students was based on their academic achieve- ment and extra-curricular activities. They saw such sights as the U.S. Captiol, Empire State Building, and the presidential memorials. From July 3 to July 30, two Lincoln students ventured to Europe to visit Austria, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, and Italy. They saw the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Vatican in Rome, and the ruins of Athens in Greece. The trip is sponsored by the American institute of For- eign Study.

Students from France, Brazil experience Railsplitter life Coming to the United States was a challeng- ing experience for Chrystiane Holanda e Silva and Cilles Marceau. They both came to the US under the international Student Exchange program. Chrystiane is from Fortaleza, Brazil, and lived at the home of Jerry Hickey, social science department. When asked what she liked the best in the United States, Chrystiane commented, " The people, Lincoln High, and the food. " The big- gest problem she encountered was English. Living in Brazil, she speaks Portugese, and experienced many language barriers here. Cilles, 17-year old exchange student from Montargis, France, which is about 50 miles south of Paris, lived with Jim Grant and his family. Cilles said that the way people think and the things that they do in the United States are different from France . . .that this is what makes the United States more fun. Cilles commented, " The best things in the United States are the people and my new friends. " 68
