While we studied about it before going, it still seemed like an unimportant country to the south of Germany. We found we were wrong! Our experiences in Austria were varied and unusual. Some of us were in Vienna or other cities, some in small agri- cultural towns, some in remote mountain villages, and others on farms. Yet, in comparing experiences, we found that we all agreed that Austria was one of the most beautiful little countries in the world, and the people were incomparably friendly and hospitable. As we traveled through Austria we saw her ever beauti- ful countryside change constantly. In the west are the Alps, rugged and challeng- ing. Those of us there tried a little mountain climbing, watched mining opera- tions, and basked in the sun at the comfortable resorts. Going east we found the agricultural district with old castles, vineyards, towns, and villages unchanged for centuries beside the Blue Danube. We loved the b-icycle and auto trips to the many fascinating sites in this part of Austria. We spent our end-of-summer stay in fabulous Vienna. Here we found the center of Austrian culture and life, an old city of palaces, wine gardens, and music. We saw Vienna's modern swim- ming beaches, her Baroque palace of Schonbrun, and the dignified Lord Mayor of Vienna. We will long remember the courageous Austria that has made a mag- nificent comeback after Nazi and Russian occupation. We will long remember the beautiful Austria of rugged Alps and rolling countryside. We will long re- member growing Austria, building a strong country that can take her place in the modern world, and' still keep her old world charm. We will always remember her gentle, laughing, hard-working people who took us into their homes and hearts.

If you were to ask any of the eleven AFS Belgian returnees what country foutside of the United States, is the greatest, there would be no question as to our answer. We all agree that it is Belgium. The Belgian people, whose hospitality is well known throughout the world, accepted us wholeheartedly into their homes. Some of us had language barriers to overcome, but we soon learned from our Belgian families that kindness is the international language. This little nation, which is sandwiched between France, Germany, and Holland, possesses a combination of qualities from these and many other countries in Eu- rope. Our Belgium is really unique. From mountains to lowlands, from historical showplaces to small town markets, Belgium has plenty of charm. We soon be- came aware of the many famous Flemish painters, and for many of us this was our first experience with the finer things in life. European history was there be- fore our eyes in these paintings and in countless other Belgian sights. Will any of us ever forget the Mannekin Pis, the World's Fair, or the countless youth hostels which we invaded? Maybe our feet did ache after those long walks through Antwerp, but that was only a small price to pay for the valuable experiences we enjoyed. No, we will never forget the Belgians, but will they forget us? Surely the ice cream salesmen will notice a lag in their business and the souvenir shops will not be as frequented. But most important of all were our families . . . and we all know that our memories will be with them forever. How many of us made the promise, "I'll be back again, sometime." We all did, and who knows, maybe we will, for Belgium became our second homeland . . . Au revoir!

During the final week of our stay we took a trip together visiting three cities. The first of the three cities was Belo Horizonte. We termed it as "Average Town, U.S.A.," because of the separate residential and business districts. The second, Ouro Preto, is the city in which progress stopped in the 1800's. Nothing new has been added since that time. After a struggle, we finally acquired a Brasilian Air Force plane to fly to Brasilia, the third city. The new capital was built in the in- terior to move the population from the crowded coastline. When completed, it will be the most modern city in the world. Going by bus from the airport, we saw the buildings under construction and the President's palace which was completed. The whole city was fascinating and won't be forgotten. This past summer for us, as for each exchange student, was one we will never forget.

Denmark-the oldest kingdom in the world-is a state in which "few have too much and fewer too little." The Danish way of life represents harmony be- tween culture and civilization, as well as between classes. We students realized Danish democracy in the clean, well-dressed citizens, in the fresh and effer- vescent towns and countryside, in the Dannebrog flying from a flagpole at every home, and in all the everyday events of work and play in which the Danish people display their remarkable zest, a character truly representing the most exhilarating people in Europe. Remember the aromas from the bakeries and the chimney smoke that smells of dinner as we strolled down a cobblestone street anywhere in Denmark? We Danes shall never forget the Danish food, too wonderful to describe with words other than the proper names: smgzirrebrdd, Wienerbryid, Is and Rgdgrdd med flgide. Not only by visiting famous and fascinating castles-Kronborg, Frederiksborg, and Christiansborg-and other places of national and historical importance and beauty--Hans Christian Andersen's Odense home, Ebeltoft Town Hall, Skagen, Rebild, Jelling Stpnes, Hjerl, Hede, Fangi, and Mains Klint-but shar- ing the summer days and by exchanging knowledge of our countries did we realize the enrichment of our AFS summer as well as the pleasure. We shall always remember Danish democracy as unassuming but genuineg down to earth yet with its eyes turned to the skies and the slogan of the Danish people: "Not only for pleasure." This and more was our summer-AFS DENMARK 1959.

No doubt the first thing many of us did when we found out we were going to Finland was to run to a map to find out just where the country was located. We may have worried slightly about getting to know the people because so many Americans have the stereo-typed picture of the stolid, serious Finns, who do not take much of an interest in anything but work. Yet we became more and more thrilled at the prospect of going to Finland because not much is heard about it, and we realized we were in for a very different experience. Any apprehension that we may still have felt as We boarded the ship was completely dispelled as we met our chaperons, Liisa Hinkkanen and juhani Kindberg. None of us will ever forget the many experiences we shared with them, especially on the trip through Europe to Helsinki. We felt that this trip helped the Finnish group become so closely knit. We had to be, or someone would have been left behind! In Helsinki we met our families and started on the most exciting experience of our lives- becoming acquainted with Finland. Here we found a land of 60,000 lakes sur- rounded by majestic evergreen forests. We found cities which combined beauty in parks, statues, and walks, with busy and varied industries. We found prosper- ous farms were people worked hard, yet lived life to its fullest. But most im- portant of all, we found a land of happy people, people who took a great interest in music, art, and theatre, as well as the out-of-doors and sports. Finland, then, means to us a nation of quiet, awesome beauty, where people work hard while enjoying life to its utmost. We think of a country that has known strife, yet has held to its high ideals and not given in to stronger forces. We know that we will again be drawn to Finland's shores, and we hope it will not be long before we again enter the land which has come to mean so much to us, and hear people say once more, "Tervetuloa Suomi-Welcome to Finland!" nut urn I Om'-KP AV' an-ral xr BILLIE ANN COLBURN Fremont, California KENNETH CROSS Yuba City, California GLADYS ALLISON Fairfield, Connecticut RONNETA BISMAN Springfield, Missouri GEORGE BLAIR Elma, New York ARCHER DODSON Roanoke, Virginia I A I l Q N W an K L..

Practically every corner and region of France from the French Riviera to Brittany was in- habited for three months by one of the 36 Americans sent to France. We tried to act French, live French, and, probably the hardest, speak French. While in France, we learned most of the habits and customs of the French people, like never lighting more than two cigarettes with one match, or their love of camping while on vacation. Our activities during the two months were as varied as the regions in which we lived. Some worked on wine farms, others helped out in the fields, and still others just loafed and went swimming and touring. The highlight of our stay in France was probably the week-and-a-half stay in Paris for everyone at the end of the summer. Here we talked over our experi- ences, families, and amusing incidents. We visited all of the scenic and familiar tourist spots, and during our free time we walked around the streets-gathering in all the full flavor of Paris life. Probably the most vivid memory anyone has of our stay in Paris is the two day bus trip through the Loire Valley to see the famous Chateaux country. These two days not only united us all into a close group, but also provided us with the opportunity to really get to know one another. We sang, told jokes, and just laughed at anything that was out of the ordinary. At the end of the summer on the boat enroute to America, one could usually see the French kids together. In all probability we were still rehashing memories of our wonderful stay in France, and of the great time we had-all regretting that we couldn't have stayed longer in la belle France.

Awakened by noisy young people in the Youth Hostels at 5:30 a.m. was even more painful with a long stretch ahead on a bicycle. Some teen-agers spent their mornings in a school with strict teachers, and chat- tering students. Many were even eating their werst sandwiches as the lecture proceeded. All was very friendly even to the point where everyone shook hands as they met acquaintances on the street. Muttie had Mittagessen all ready when the children came home, be it from school or play. It may have been meat or Griesbrei, but it was tasty. This was shown by the number of people who gained weight during their summer visit. Not only was the dinner good, but the other five meals had equal taste. Those who went to Berlin will always remember the sessions in the Jazz cellars. The visit of the "Cornell Ivy Five" will stand out in those memories. The adventures of the Americans in Germany were varied. Some worked in the Southern vineyards while others sat and watched the ships in a Hamburg port. An interesting and good time was had by all. No one will forget his family and all of the nice German customs. All of the German visitors have a common memory from their experience in Bremen. The beautiful ships hanging in the Rathaus, the old grandfather clock that rang as each speaker began, the beautiful cathedral, and the oldest house in Bremen are all impressions left in the minds of intrigued AFSers. They will re- member Helga von Hoffman, and all are thankful to her and the local chairmen for their help in making a perfect German summer. The climax to the summer was a party in Bremerhaven, something enjoyed by all. Finally the short summer came to a close. Tears came to the eyes of some as they said Auf Wiedersehen to their German friends and families, but all are looking for their return to Deutschland. ,fam alfa?

I was talking to one of them a fortnight ago and he told me about some of their experiences. They all arrived in London on june 29 and their first mistake was to look the wrong way before crossing the street, as he nearly got run down, one of the boys, Archie Duncanson, told the car's driver that he was driving on the wrong side of the road. Many of the stu- dents were met by their summer families in London, while others traveled to their new homes. The students were located all over England except for Mary Willis who stayed in North Ireland. Tom Seed became a teddy boy of Sheffield during the summer. Several of the Americans were able to go to Wales and Scotland which enabled them to contrast their surroundings. Others were able to attend school for a few weeks and they found many differences in the two systems. The biggest differ- ence was that here the schools aren't co-educational. The Yankees also found the food to be very different-and fattening! Fish 'n' chips, and roast beef and York- shire pudding were favorites. Of course, that daily afternoon spot of tea was en- joyed by all and all 19 were confirmed tea drinkers when they left. Other liquid refreshments were enjoyed by the boys at the pubs, which they haunted at all hours. The British Association of the American Field Service arranged a trip for our visitors during the last week of their stay. London was the first spot on the tour and the AFSers spent four days seeing the city from top to bottom ffrom the dome of St. Paul's to the London subwaysj. While in London the group attended a movie premiere of "Blind Date" and even had their picture taken with the star. The next day all were caught in a flash shower that flooded the Tube stations fthe subway, and everyone had to walk from the Tower of London to the Strand for dinner. That same night they attended a performance of the Festival Ballet- still dripping wet. There was some confusion that night when Sylvia Sykora got lost alone at 12:00 in the Tube station and missed the last train home. The rest of the end-of-summer stay was spent in Bristol and Bath where the AFSers stayed at Winterbourne, a girls' boarding school, the boys really liked that! Traveling back to London at the end of the week, all bade good-by to their English families for the last time. As the train pulled out of the London station many tears were shed, but all 19 vowed that they would some day return to Eng- land for a longer stay. My informers say that all had a wonderful time and a constant reminder of their English summer is their British accent which they all have a little troublelosingg all, that is, except Gayle Turner from Alabama, who never lost her Southern one. Well, it's four o'clock now and tea time so I must go. Cheerio!"

Although things were a little difficult to adjust to at first, we soon lost our feelings of shyness and settled down to becoming a part of our respective families. Learning a new alpha- bet and a new language was fun, and on the plane we gathered in small groups to study our little blue "bibles," Say It in Modern Greek. We learned to eat new foods and found it hard to turn down the fifth helping. Certainly we will all remember the fresh fruit and the delicious Greek "sweets," Sleeping and eating hours confused us at first-we could not quite get used to eating supper at 10:30 p.m. We marveled at the beauty and splendor of the ancient Greek ruins and felt very small and unimportant when thinking of the great men who had lived there and had contributed so much to the world as we know it today. The cities are both new and old, and the fruit seller with his donkey and cart were often seen stopped in front of a modem building. The fun-loving nature of the people in- fected us all and helped us to adapt to many things that had previously been strange. Perhaps the most outstanding impression we received from our sum- mer's stay was the hospitality, kindness, and friendliness of the Greek people. They were always willing to go out of their way to be courteous to us and to help us, no matter how poor they may have been. We will never forget our families and the friends that we made. Our thanks to the American Field Service for making our trip possible. M, 4 L if 1 i lift' gf a ,. 5.3 1 A 2 Q . .. .

For the four of us it was quite a shock at first. Books pictured this country to be a tropical paradise of tall volcanic mountains, lush green rice paddies, and waving palms. We could expect only what we had read in books as we were the first AFS group to be sent to this little-known country. If this land was unfamiliar to friends at home, the true America was equally unknown to the Indonesians. All summer we found ourselves counteracting false impressions given by American books and movies. Now at home we four are busy sharing our knowledge and love for our second country, Indonesia. We found that the element left out of books was that of the warm-hearted, genuine Indonesian people. They will always stand first in our memories. Our families were all different: some large, some more modern-minded, some quite religious, some wealthy, some closely-knit, but all of them surrounded us with love as their own children. Our happiest moments were spent in the heart of the family life. Soon we reached beyond the family to be adopted into large groups of friends. Everywhere young people were eager to meet us, to practice their English, but most of all, to be friends. With a group of happy young people we might go to a party, speak at a high school, go on a swimming picnic, take a trip to a tobacco factory, visit a Moslem mosque, sing Indonesian folk songs on the veranda, or wander through the gay night markets. Although eager to learn about America, our friends were even more eager to teach us their Indonesian language, customs, and culture. Often we struggled through the steps of a Sumatran dance, or asked what "this" was in Indonesian, or blew away on a suling pipe, but our efforts were rewarded by the pride of our families and friends when we were success- ful. The most exciting part of our summer was the trip at the end of the summer. Grier and Sue left Bandung, and with two AFS returnees travelled to Surabaja where Molly and Jo had been living. Together we went on to the exotic little island of Bali where for four days we saw graceful dancers, a cockfight, and delicately carved Hindu temples. The highlight was a cremation where jo got a little green. The nasi goreng, or fried rice may have had something to do with it! On this island we were given a bright green tropical bird which we promptly dubbed "AFSIS" and swung out the back of the station wagon. Once again on java we visited several cities, Semarang, Solo, and jogjakarta. In every city we were taken in by new families and made new friends. They took us to see all their cities had to offer: batik cloth factories, schools, ancient ruins, and even the Crown Prince of Jogja. We got back to the capital city just in time for the big Independence Day cele- bration on August 17th. There was a two and one half hour speech by the presi- dent, a long colorful parade, and a whole evening of national dances to help us realize the pride and enthusiasm of this young Indonesian nation. Perhaps the one moment the four of us will always remember was our interview with Presi- dent Sukarno himself. This charming head-of-state asked us himself why we fAmericaj did not send better things than rock 'n' roll, movie star magazines, and Hollywoodized movies. He presented a challenge which will always be be- fore each one of us. That is, to bring the countries we love so much into a richer, deeper understanding of each other. ,vu Susan Hastings dressed in Indonesian national costume, the "kain" and the "kebaja."

Yes, as we returned from our summer abroad we agreed that Italy is truly this, sunny in many ways. We of course felt the heat of the sun as we walked with our new brothers and sisters and as we ran to cool ourselves in the blue of the sea. The warmth of Italy's sun shining through her people enveloped us also as we became part of an Italian family. We learned in this new role what family closeness can be and we lost our fear and embarrassment at showing affection. Our dear Italian mamma, from her persuading us to eat that second helping of pasta or that eighth piece of fruit to her last hug and kiss at night, was probably a primary factor in our new-found warmth. And the wonder- ful songs-"Io, Sono Io,'i"f fktrIlQQfrci," "Ciao, Ciao, Bambinaf' that were such an outstanding part of Italian ligig I ini: a part of us too. On our ten-day bus tour after leaving our families, 'vvie3?Xperie:Eed1'Italy's sur1 again, reflecting beauty. The ancient dignity of Pompei, Sorrento and the breath-taking view of the Bay of Naples, and the majesty of St. Peter's overwhelmed us. 'We witnessed beauty for the sake of beauty alone as we threw our coins into Trevi fountain and later as we rested in the classic green gardens at Tivoli. Even the land reforms and their newness impressed us. As we boarded our plane in Rome, saying good-bye to Tony and Duda,eour beloved chaperones, and singing for the last time the theme song of the bus tour, we realized how much of Italy and her sun we had absorbed. We felt a closeness to our fellow students which we had learned only from contact with the Italian people, we felt the warmth of true beauty as it touched us everywhere we traveled, and we still felt the influence of our wonder- ful Italian families. We were able to carry home the bit of Italy's sun which was I now ours to share with our own families and friends. 4-gym, ,,,, JUDY BALLIET FRANCES BANVILLE STEVE BECKWITH SUSAN BROWN PAT CHAPLIN Springfield, Silver Spring, Glenview, Illinois San Pedro, Iowa Falls, Iowa Missouri Maryland California ., 1, ,J ' Judy Balliet proves that she is indeed a friend of animals by feeding the pigeons in the town square.

As we lived and traveled on her tiny islands, we saw her wear each of these faces. Nippon is, at the same time, a vibrant young girl and a proud old woman. She protects the memories of her past lovingly, yet she responds energetically to the challenges of the 20th century. We ate her rice, her raw fish, her soy bean candy, and her seaweed. We slept on the mat floors of her tiny homes. We wore her kimonos and clattered along her narrow streets in her wooden getas. We scrubbed and relaxed in her community baths. We vis- ited her schools and taught English to her earnest and conscientious students. We were introduced to her custom of "gentlemen first." We sang and danced her folk music and participated in her traditional tea ceremony. We visited her busy factories and shopped in her modern department stores. We tried out our not-quite Japanese at the Rotary Club luncheons. We were moved by her tragic monument to world peace-Hiroshima. And we talked, laughed, and, as we bid "sayonara," we cried, with her friendly people.

'Ax ...fs 5,4 if 3 A Luxembourg, one of the oldest independent countries in Europe, was home for eight of us AFSers last summer, and we consider ourselves the luckiest group in the whole AFS program. We found tiny Luxembourg to be a beautiful country with mountains, forests, neat fields, and trim little towns. A half hour ride by automobile took us to any of Luxembourg's borders, and many of us had a chance to travel outside of the country with our families. Luxembourg's landscape is dotted with many ancient castles and to us AFSers these castles were a main at- traction as we traveled all over the country. We found our families, in fact, all Luxembourgers, to be very happy and to have a strong spirit of freedom. A fa- vorite and typical expression we found was "mir wolle bleiwe wat mir sin" which means "we want to remain what we are." After spending a summer in Luxem- bourg we can see how true that saying is. We all were surprised to see how many American items our families had. Nearly every family had a refrigerator and an automatic washing machine, their standard of living was very comfortable. Luxembourg still had a charm all her own and part of this was shown in her delicious foods: Ardennes hams, all kinds of fresh water fish, and marvelous Qand fatteninglj pastries. We were introduced to many new summer sports by our Luxembourg brothers and sisters, and we soon became avid fans and players of soccer and bicycle racing. The days were never long enough to do all we wanted to do, and all too soon our summer was over. Saying good-bye to our families we realized how much we had come to love the people and country of Luxembourg, and we knew we would never forget them. We too "want to remain what we are" so that someday we may go back to our Luxembourg and again become a part of their wonderful way of life.

Some of us met on the buses, trains, and airplanes going to New York, but we all got well acquainted at our orientation and language classes on the ship. Everyday, as the ship drew nearer and nearer to Norway, we became more and more excited about the wonderful experiences that lay ahead of us. We traveled as a group as far as Oslo and from there departed to meet the people who would be our Norwegian families for the summer. During those months in which we each lived with our families we came to love the Norwegian people and their way of life. So many things were new to usg the food, the language, and interesting towns and villages, but we soon grew to know and love all of it. In the middle of August we left our families and met as a group once more for a wonderful week at a ski lodge. Here we had a chance to talk over our individual experiences and to learn how the other 55 AFSers had fared during the summer. We all were convinced that Norway was our second home and that someday each one of us would return. Our Norwegian chaperons, Harold and Ragnar, surely did everything possible to make our stay in Norway most pleasant and exciting. We thank them both for their help.

We arrived at Karachi, the capital of Pakistan, after an exciting plane trip from Amsterdam, with stop offs at Geneva, Rome, and Cairo, and met our summer families at the airport. Our first introductions to Pakistani hospitality were our warm welcomes, and the lovely garlands of flowers our families gave us. Thereafter we spent a truly enchanted summer, seeing and doing what we had never dreamed of before. We shopped at bazaars, were waited upon by servants, rode camels, swam in the Arabian Sea. Dressed in the native dress we went to parties, and throughout the summer we lived with and loved our families, and practiced Urdu. Near the end of the summer we took a trip North to Lahore, the cultural capital of Pakistan, and to Murree, a village in the foothills of the Himalaya Mountains. At the end of the summer we returned to the States, vowing to go back someday to visit our second homes. We called sad good-byes to our families, "Coodahafis,,' Coodahafisf' 51,5 653551.

All we can do when we hear the Philippines mentioned is sigh. A million words could never express our feelings for that wonderful country. From the time we arrived until the time we left, we never ceased to be amazed at the overwhelming hospitality of the Filipinos. For most of us, our Filipino families were the most wonderful part of the ex- perience. There we found warmth, kindness and love, that could be matched by our own American families. Typical native houses became our homes for eleven weeks. They had nippa roofs and split bamboo floors. Orchids and ba- nana trees grew outside our windows, and there were rice fields in our back yards. We soon learned to eat rice and "Balut" like experts. Our walks frequently led to the market place which seemed like a scene from the "Arabian nights." There we could buy almost anything under the sun, every kind of fruit imaginable, many which we had never even heard of before. Because the school vacation is from March to June, we all had an opportunity to attend Filipino High Schools. We wore the school uniforms, learned Tagalog, the National Language, and sang the school songs. Weekends were our favorite times. We would go on excursions, arranged by different school organizations, where we would ride carabaos, paddle bankas, or swim at a sandy beach fringed with palm trees and nippa huts. The Filipinos love to sing on outings and we learned quite a few beautiful na- tive songs. We also acquired a good many bruises on our ankles from trying to dance the "Tinikiling," a lively dance between bamboo poles that are being banged rhythmically together. Since none of the students lived in or near Manila, but rather out in the Prov- inces, we feel that we acquired a much truer picture of typical Filipino life. Al- though it broke our hearts to leave the families we had learned to love so much, all nine of us met in Manila for the final week of our stay in the Philippines. We visited all the points of interest in the Capital City and had a memorable meeting with President Carlos Garcia in his executive office. We also visited the Summer Capital of Baguio. The time to leave came all too soon. None of us likes to think of that mournful day. We would rather think ahead to the time when we will again be with those gay, sincere and wonderful little people.

This year eight AFSers found out how exciting and wonderful Spanish life is. We found out how wonderful the Spanish people are and how misunderstood Franco and his regime are. Most of our families spoke no English so we learned Spanish fairly well, also. Although there were only eight of us we covered almost all of Spain in our travels. We found the language to be different in the various parts but the people were the same-just wonderful. Spain is over ninety per cent Catholic. Therefore, we all visited many churches, monasteries, and shrines. We noticed the strictness of the religion when we saw American films and realized how much was cut out. The Spaniards didn't know what they were missing. The people think that America is just like the movies. Many of them think that the West is still infested with cowboys and Indians! Most of the people like Franco even though most foreigners think otherwise. Be- fore he became dictator there was constant internal fighting in the country and the majority of the people were starving. Only the Spaniards themselves can see the real good he has done. There is one difficulty with the government which we hope will soon be cleared up. AFS is an illegal organization in Spain now, but is in the process of being legalized. The food was one of the best parts of Spanish life. We had three large meals each day, breakfast at 9:00, lunch between two and three o'clock, and dinner around ten. There was a snack called "merienda" at five or five-thirty consisting of fruit, chocolate, or such. The outstanding differences in the meals were the bread, the wine, and so much fruit for dessert. When the average person thinks of Spain he associates it with bullfighting. They were wonderful and not at all gory. The excitement of the iole! and the sight of the huge beast made it more than we expected. The fact that the meat went to orphanages after the fight calmed any fears we might have had! It hasn't been mentioned how much we feel indebted to the program or how we feel about the exchange or our own foreign families because it wouldn't matter where we went--japan, Switzerland, Brazil, any of the participating countries- we would feel a warm glow towards the people of the whole world. We know that anyone who has become a member of the AFS family will know how we feel and probably feels the same way himself. Damos las gracias a AFS. iAdios!

Well, we surely didn't know much about Sweden when we first started. We learned fast though, with our two experts Mummet and Goran. Remember those early morning language classes on board the S.S. Zuiderkruis? By the time we got to Europe we knew a lot more about what to expect in Sverige. There was the day in gorgeous Rotterdam and then the long, long train ride to Sweden. Even while carrying the suitcases the boys managed to sing the praises of Mr. Heineken. Finally, late Sunday, we met our families. We were all wor- ried about what they would be like. Then followed the best part of our entire experience, being part of a new family, a new country, a new way of life. It was hard at first, but we all made it. Sometimes it was the language, sometimes it was the food, but we learned to enjoy and appreciate all of it. There was the terrific get-together in Goteborg in july with the trip to Marstrand. The end came all too soon. Suddenly we were saying sad good-byes to our families and friends. August 20 we all met in Stockholm, the most beautiful capital of the North, for a final round of parties, sight-seeing tours, and our record-smashing trip to Grips- holm. Wherever we had been, in the mountains, at the sea, in the city, we real- ized that the real charm of Sweden is its people. Our families will always be a part of us, reminding us of the greatest experience of our lives. As the summer came to a close on the S.S. Groote Beer, as we dropped the sealed capsule overboard, as we saw the lights of New York and sang the national anthem at dinner, we knew that our summer in Sweden would always be a part of us and of our lives.

The most striking feature of Switzerland is the cleanliness of the houses and the large nwnber of flower boxes at the windows overflowing with red geraniums. The old town quarters of the cities with their narrow winding streets and the old architecture of the buildings and cathedrals are indescribably beautiful. Of course, the Alps are not to be overlooked. Their majestic snow-capped peaks glimmering in the sun are breathtaking. The Swiss people are friendly and courteous and, as each one of us experienced, very easy to like and hard to forget. Though they speak four different lang- uages, the Swiss people are closely bound together by a common loyalty and strong feeling of patriotism. Language differences seem to make little difference in their relations. Switzerland is a country of ever-changing scenery. To go from the hot, dry Wallis to the beautiful snow-covered Alps and sparkling mountain lakes takes but a few hours. The political structure of Switzerland is most interesting. The Swiss people through the years have adhered strictly to a policy of neutrality, although at times it may have seemed rather difficult. The entire country can be mobilized in twenty-four hours, ten jet planes patrol the country at all times, and the Alps are heavily fortified. The Swiss Army could hold off any invader for two years. Our last week in Switzerland' was a memorable one for all. We gathered in a city in the eastern part and during the week visited many places, the most out- standing being the Pestalozzidorf, a home for orphans in the foothills of the Alps. Our Swiss group has asked to express our deep thanks to jurg and Hanspeter Mul- ler for all their time and work in planning such a wonderful program for us. We would also like to thank Peter Ludwig, Helene Cart, Jimmy Humbert, and all the local Swiss chairmen for making our summer such an unforgettable one. Our feelings are best expressed as told by a fellow AFSer. He said, "I think that Jimmy Humbert best said it when I first met him and told him I was going to Switzerland. jimmy said, 'All these kids are lucky, but you're the luckiest.' " We all agree.

Hardly had the wheels of our plane touched the ground when we were thrilled by the sight of throngs of Turks who had come to see us. This was to be only a hint of what was to come in our summer with one of the friendliest peoples in the world. We were greeted at the door by one who was to help us greatly all summer, Gonul Sipahi, secretary of the AFS in Turkey. The majority of us met our families at the airport, the rest waited to start a trip to Ankara, Ismir, and other parts of the country. Naturally we were soon interested in Turkish food. We are sure that eggplant can be prepared in more than 1000 ways. Rice proved to be a rare delicacy, and everyone was proud of the shish kebab. Fruit was a welcome part of every meal. Almost all of us admitted that the food was very good. All praised the wonderful pastries, especially the baklivar. Every one of us was impressed by the contrasts of Turkey. The modern build- ings stand beside ancient fortresses. The almost American life in Istanbul com- pared to the more Eastern life in the South, the crowds of the city and the slow quaint life in the villages, all these stood out in our minds. This land of two continents is one of great beauty. In the city numerous mos- ques seem all alike, but different somehow. The skyline is filled with minarets en- compassed by quaint scaffolds. Beautiful palaces and fortresses, only a few in ruins, will remain awesome in our minds forever. Can anyone forget Aya Sophia, the Palace of Dolmabahce, or the Blue Mosque of Sultan Ahmet? Even the Galata Bridge over the Golden Horn seems to possess some beauty. The biggest and happiest part of our trip was learning of the people of Turkey. Not only our families, but all our Turkish friends, just could not do enough for us. They were all warm, friendly, and sociable. Everyone had his own wild ex- periences to testify to the sociability of the Turks. We found that even the pres- ence of Russia could not mar the beauty of the Black Sea, but the rocks in it are quite rough. The Sea or Marmara is a romantic blue, and "jamaica Farewell" seems to be the song of those who really appreciate it. Away from the water, the men on donkeys, the crowded trams, and the crazy dolmus drivers all were an important part to us of Turkish Fraternity. As we gathered at the airport to leave, our attachment for our families was felt by all. As we sadly left our friends and happily began the trip home, we were again hailed by a mob of Turks, this time all our friends. Our trip wasn't over yet, however, there were 17 hours in Athens, doing nothing, and 800 pounds of baggage left there after the bags had lost weight after we ate all our food. Then there was Shannon, and money flying. Next was Gander- America at last! After 98 milkshakes from three machines, we left for New York. Tired, wondering about our luggage, and home at last, we all are glad to be back. An AFS get-together in the ruins near a Turkish village.
