house and my school back home but I like this school more."

in the Philippines."

I miss boat rides, games, and my teacher there."

Molika Oum, 11, United States

"I like living here because I can see my parents' family and meet a lot of people from different countries.

I like my school a lot. My class has only eight students so we get a lot of attention and can talk together with

our teacher as a friend. I miss my sister and brother back in Long Beach and my friends there. I also miss shopping."

Rene Pereira, 10, India and Nepal

"The people here are very friendly. The people in my school are like family, like your brother and sister.

In Nepal I miss my friends and what we used to eat - chapati and puri. In India, I miss the wildlife and going

into the jungle, seeing the monkeys and beautiful birds. I miss my grandparents in India also."

Cary Dorsey, 11, United States

"I like it here because I have lots of friends. Also it's quiet and there's lots of trees-not like Bangkok

at all with the buildings everywhere. I just like the peace and quiet. In the states I miss my family. We used

to go on family outings and picnics."
