Thank you James Schaller (James’ Jr.’s dad) for coming in to help us learn more about Switzerland and Sadef Khan for providing us with Italian chef hats and books all about the countries within Europe.

James demonstrated how people used to seal letters before the adhesive method was implemented. He also showed us the family crest that he pressed into the wax when sealing the letter.
