    Intereting. I do have two friends who brought their children this fall, who have lived for many years in Kathmandu, Nepal, and St. Petersburg, Russia. That’s where their children were raised…. but those countries don’t show up in the list of countries represented. ??? It would make your stats even more interesting!
