My AFS experience
Many years ago I got to spend a year in The US as an exchange student. I stayed in Arkansas City, Kansas. I had a great year living with a nice family. I feel I learned a lot during that year and hopefully I was able to share some information about Norway.
This summer my my family and I took the trip to Kansas to visit my hostfamily. It's been 19 years since I saw them the last time and it was so great to finally get back.
The family had grown since I was there a new sister in-law and a brother in-law and eight new nieces and nephews. The three weeks we spend in Arkansas City, Kansas went way to fast, however we did get to do and see a lot of nice things.

I would like you to consider the great experience it is to host an exchange student. If you have Norwegian ancestors wouldn't this be a great opportunity to learn about Norway?
Most towns in the USA have an AFS chapter and if you are not able to host this year any kind of support is greatly appreciated. You can host a student for a week-end.
All the AFS chapters are working to make the student's year memorable. Help them in this work!
