STAUNTON -- A group of foreign high school students and leaders visited the Valley this week to learn more about American culture. They're from Staunton's sister city, Dabas, Hungary, which is about 4,000 miles away from the Valley.

Janos Talaber, one of the group leaders, said having a sister city allows students from both countries to learn.

“I think it is great for students to get to know about each of these cultures and for us, it's great to be here and look around and see how American life is and what it looks like or such things,” said Talaber.

One of their first stops was a small horse farm. They experienced life on a small farm in Virginia by feeding horses and catching the smell of a skunk in the distance.

One of their other stops this week is at Robert E. Lee High School. They hope to establish a relationship with the students and teachers there.

The group will be staying in the U.S. until April 11th.

They are hoping to catch an American movie sometime this week and a day trip to Washington, D.C. has also been planned. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
