27 Years Today...



Well today was my birthday - thanks for the well wishes (Mum-deb, April, Saison, Aimee, Kevin, Myra, and Tey). Zaak had me open my presents from him on the roof so he could light firecrackers for me ( a tradition here) and he gave me a lovely pair of jade earrings and a journal. Then our neighbors Ruth and Walter had us over for a very tasty birthday breakfast of waffles with strawberries and whipped cream and fresh pineapple - delish! I started to get a bit sad later in the day, missing my family and friends but I was looking forward to going out for supper with Zaak and Blaise. Little did I know my english students planned a surprise party for me! So I got to enjoy a pinata, cake, tamales, and the company of my new friends here. God is so good to me; it has been a cumpleanos to remember!
