Wow, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve blogged. I guess that’s a testament to my busy life.
Anyhow, I want to share with you a very special day (that really was a three-day celebration).
Birthdays are a big deal in this culture and I was indeed spoiled on mine. It began when my Intermediate English class declared class over so we could go out to Pizza Inn to celebrate. Friday morning, my friend and neighbor, Debi, served me a custom-made omelette before I headed off to work. That night, my Basic I and II classes made a huge cake and brought me an amazing fruit tray for my birthday. But the highlight had to be the kids at school.
They decided to throw a surprise party for me. They were incredibly cute plotting and planning how to get me out of the way so they could bring the special lunch their moms had made for us. As I walked out the door the showered me with hibiscus. I sure preferred that to the traditional cracking of eggs followed by a shower of flour (not flowers).
