Rome Wasn't Built in a Day, Right?

  That’s the question and/or sarcastic answer my parents have been throwing at me since childhood. Patience is not my strong suit, but in the case of our RYE kiddos, it has to be. To step into a culture that is so out of character can be difficult yet breathtaking. To venture into a foreign country, away from the friends and family that have been by your side since – well forever – requires not just patience, but natural instinct, optimism, encouragement, and confidence. All of our young ambassadors seem to possess this talent and many more.

What's on the Menu?!


As I was thinking about traditions and my mom slowly dealing with the fact that she wasn’t getting her typical New Year’s Day meal because we spent that day at a softball field in Orlando, I began to think of all the food I’ve had. The worst, the best, and the ones I’m totally obsessed with like New York style pepperoni pizza. I thought to myself, “I wonder if Chawin thinks any of my meals are gross…”


So, I posed this question to our students:


Best and worst foods so far? I won’t even lie, I laughed a quite a few of these.

A New Place to Call Home

You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.” ~ Miriam Adeney

Divine Mirrors

“I call my horses ‘divine mirrors’ – they reflect back the emotions you put in.  If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the animal will return that” – Allan Hamilton
