Family dinner July 17, 2010

The staff at the Cooperativa Spanish School helped me put on a dinner for the Beca families on Friday, July 16th, 2010. All of the families attended (more than 60 guests in all), the food was delicious, and if it meant even half as much to the families as it did to me, it was a huge success. If you’re interested, check out the complete Flickr set that includes family and school visits and the dinner.
