September 5th .......24th Birthday
Another birthday… not quit the same as if I were at home. The Batswana do not consider birthdays a very big deal and some parents don’t even remember their children’s birthdays at all. So I am thankful to have two roommates that care about me enough to through me a pirate themed dinner party. You have to get creative here you just can't go to dinner and movie because there is no where to go.
Then there was a party at the church. I think the children enjoyed it more than I did because they very rarely get cake. It was nice to enjoy the day with my new friends but I did miss the ones at home. Thank you for your e-mails, cards and words or encouragement it made my day very special.
