Lost scene from Dirty Dancing 2? Nope, that’s just Concord’s Clara Symmes and her host sister, Luise, on top of the parliamentary building (Reichstagsgebäude) in Berlin.
Symmes and Saskia, the exchange student her family hosted during her senior year in high school, in front of the famous “I amsterdam” sculpture in Amsterdam.
Clara Symmes with her host family skiing in the Austrian Alps.
Symmes with her host sister, Luise, in traditional South-German and Austrian dresses called dirndls.
We’d say Concord’s Clara Symmes looks right at home in front of the Brandenburg Gate last September, wouldn’t you? She spent her first year after high school in Germany and many other parts of Europe.
