To pass the time Annie and her brothers played a game and lined up with their new friends for a photo by country, starting with the one furthest east. Conrad was from Frankfurt. Danica was from Warsaw. Antonio's family came from Naples. Mikhail's family came from Moscow. Astrid and her family got on the boat in Amsterdam. Jin came by himself, all the way from Peking (now called Beijing)! George's family lived just outside of London. Annie and her brothers were from Cork. It was fun to learn how to say hello in different languages, even if everyone was tired from their long trips and anxious to get to their destinations.
