International Food Night

Yesterday, my alma mater hosted an International Food Night. There were multiple countries represented including India, Mozambique, Mexican, Ecuador, Guatemala, El Salvador, etc. Each countries brought their own unique dishes and served samples of the dishes. It was all very good. It makes me really hope I can travel more. Traveling is so much fun. The food is a highlight for me because it says so much about a culture. Maybe one day…

In addition to the food, the booths were filled with colors, pictures, and souvenirs of the countries represented along with the students who dressed up in their ceremonial outfits. I wish I’d taken pictures to show. It was fun to hang out and learn about the different foods. My favorite dishes were from Ecuador, India, El Salvador, and Guatemala. I am bias, of course. Having traveled to most of those places before, except for El Salvador, I remember the flavors of those countries. Sadly though, I didn’t get to sample food from every country but that’s alright. There’s always next year.

To be honest, I am proud to be part of such a diverse college. It may seem common in a big state school, but for a small-town, Christian university, I don’t think many can boast a good amount of internationals. So thank you, alma mater, for being unique!
