Help to go around the world in 80 minutes

Next month we're helping lead a Scripture Union camp for grades six to eight. One of our responsibilities is to organise and run an International Night, otherwise called "80 minutes around the world". It's okay to volunteer for these things, now we need to get down to details and with only one day left until our youngest is home for the holidays and three days until the rest of the mob turn up, we'd better get cracking. What I'm looking for is some international feedback here. I know that some of you don't live in Australia. Can you help me? We particularly need: 1. Easy international snack ideas 2. Activity ideas for international stations - like the Japan 'station' might have some origami to do and the Chinese stall might have a chopsticks activity. As you can see, I'm a little Asian-biased. How about some European/South American/North American/African/Indian ideas - anyone?

The French often (usually) drink tea with lemon rather than milk - might be an interesting culture shock to try. I suppose 6-8th graders might not be used to normal tea, let alone lemon tea, though...

A French station? Hm... Well, there's a game called "Dix Mille":

I seem to remember that the native Americans taught the Europeans how to pop corn so maybe popcorn would be a snack idea?

For Germany maybe you could get some sausages :)
