Making the World a Small Place – Soup Wednesday

Pinterest

You travel. You meet people. You leave. You leave new friends.

A little over a week ago, I received a Facebook message from a girl I taught with in Ukraine. The message was also addressed to many other teachers that had come and gone the same route as we had. She brought up an interesting idea — to all take part in having a meal of soup on Wednesday to sort of signify our want to keep in touch despite being dispersed in various parts of the world.

Since I just can’t say no to soup, and because I do miss these wonderful people, I participated. Afterwards, we all sent in photos to share the moment. Here’s to soup Wednesday!

Patricia ate borscht in France.

David ate ramen in China.

Lauren ate lentil soup in the U.S.

Lauren’s cat ate soup with her.

I ate lentil with pepperoni soup in Australia.

Patrick ate soup with me.

Tanya ate lentil soup in Canada.

Brian ate ham and white bean soup in Ukraine.

Stephen ate imaginary soup in the U.S.

Stephen’s photographer played along.

I’m still waiting on a photo from our lovely ringleader, and I will be sure to post it when it has arrived. Overall, soup Wednesday was a huge success, and it was so nice to connect with these wonderful people over a wonderful dinner.

How do you make the world a small place and keep in touch with all of your worldly friends?

    Nice cat and imaginary soup photos. I have alot of friends who are now spread out around the world, and we keep in touch by one of us drunk dialing the others at random times throughout the year. Something that makes this even more funny are the different time zones, I might get a call from my friend in Israel, it’ll be late at night there and I’ll be eating breakfast here!
