This summer, a group of au pairs in Columbus, Ohio learned about thehistory of their temporary home in the United States by visiting the Olentangy Indian Caverns.
Au Pairs from around the world; Poland, Denmark, South Africa, Germany and Brazil enjoyed a guided tour where they wandered through caves formed millions of years ago by an underground river cutting through solid limestone rock.
'The Columbus Au Pairs really enjoyed the tour and were amazed to learn how old the Caverns were' said Area Director Monika Jakesova, 'They also found it fascinating to hear about the blind fish living in those caves!'
They learned about the Native American tribe called the Wyandottes, who called the caverns home for many years, and explored the different underground 'rooms' which were used for many different purposes. These au pairs say they can't wait to learn more about the history of the United States and to explore more of Ohio!
