The international studies office recommended that we bring some little items we can give as gifts to host families or Professors. So, Mom and I stopped at Curtis Orchard in Champaign and got some popcorn-on-the-cob which was grown right here in Illinois. I thought that would be a fun and unique gift that I can give people I meet along the way.
I will do my best to update this blog at least monthly. Here's a link to a full description of the program I am participating in, just in case you're interested. Check back here for periodic updates on my experiences or just subscribe or whatever and you'll get an email when I post something.
