Office Update: An international team with truly international tastes

From the United States to the far east (Japan), the team at
Easy Languages is international at heart.
Another week down, and, as we approach then end of the summer season, we also begin saying our goodbyes to our hard working interns. Today we had a goodbye luncheon for Inge, a Dutch intern from Holland, with the entire office in participation. Everyone brought food from their home country and the results were astounding, from Dutch gehaktballen (meatballs) to homemade sushi to the ever popular "quiche Lorraine." We pulled out all the stops for a truly delicious and international smorgasbord of delights. Read on to get a glimpse of the delicious menu and who brought what!
