Nearly 150 Denmark students stopped in Litchfield Thursday night and Friday morning, with 20 identical Four Winds recreational vehicles parked at the Walmart parking lot.
The back of each RV read, “Goin’ Places with Smiling Faces.” The students are currently attending Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark, and are traveling Route 66 across the United States as part of a group project.
When they arrived in Litchfield on Thursday night, they had been traveling for three days from Chicago, and their trip will end in Los Angeles after 30 days.
A total of 31 RVs will make the trip along the Mother Road including 142 students and eight teachers.
Students will be taking pictures of farm buildings, grain elevators, signs, cars, trucks and more as part of both group and individual projects.
They will also focus on the hospitality of various stops along the way, and each student will be responsible for a book about his/her experiences when they return home to Denmark.
Following their stop at Walmart, the group camped for the evening in Honey Bend before continuing their trip
