Before Marcin Bosacki came to America, he always thought of American food as nasty and fattening. But after staying in Winchester for several days last week, the Polish journalist called the local food "wonderful.""I even had lamb's fries," he said.
Bosacki was one of six European professionals who visited Winchester and the Bluegrass area last week as part of the German Marshall Memorial Fellowship Program - an exchange program that allows young community leaders from across Europe to experience the culture, politics and structure of various regions in the United States.
The group of six also included travelers from Greece, Slovakia, Hungry, Italy and Portugal.
"This is a dynamic group of individuals, and I think it is a distinct honor for Winchester to participate," said Mayor Dodd Dixon, who helped lead the group along with other local officials. "We do not take that honor lightly, and it's a responsibility that we embrace."
