About 30 former AFS exchange students in 1974 from over 14 different countries, many with their spouses, had a reunion in Croatia this week.
We came to this reunion from Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Croatia, England, Luxembourg, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Thailand and the US. I maybe forgetting a country or two.
We’re all 64 or 65 years old, and share one life-changing experience, a year abroad in the US with the AFS program. Here is a group picture.
Here are some of us on our first day in the country getting some much needed refreshments.
Here is a shot of us at the initial welcome dinner in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.
For about 10 days, all these 65-year-olds were 18 again.
