Hours before you enjoyed a glass of mulled wine, watched a bunch of men toss around the pigskin, and sat down for dinner, juniors studying abroad this semester had the unique opportunity to engage in the Turkey Day festivities in different countries (and time zones) around the world. These students have more than their respective study abroad experiences to be thankful for—Thanksgiving proved to be a reminder of these students’ national pride as they were able to take this slice of Americana with them and blow it up in big and creative ways. Check out how your peers celebrated Thanksgiving abroad after the jump.
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 2/22
Ratty: Creole Jambalaya, Steamed Green Beans, Oreo Chocolate Chip Fudge Bar
V-Dub: Breaded Chicken Fingers, Baked Acorn Squash, Onion Soup, Golden Grahams S’mores Bar
Advantage: V-Dub. Not even Oreo fudge bars beat Chicken Finger Friday.
Ratty: Chicken Curry, Lemon Filet of Sole, Escarole and Bean Soup, Frosted Brownies
V-Dub: Chicken Pesto Pasta, Stir Fried Tofu, Lentil Stew, Sweet Portuguese Bread
Advantage: Ratty. Would you really like to follow up chicken pesto pasta with a bowl of lentil stew? Plus frosted brownies for the win.
