A Night to Remember

Tonight was unexpectedly awesome. We went to a friend's house for dinner with the international students from a local college. The Japanese girls were cooking curry and the hostess made chili. Some Chinese students made eggrolls and mussels and another friend brought a birthday cake FOR ME!!!

The cake alone was a surprise and, look, it was quite lovely (Italian cream)! After dinner (which was DELICIOUS, by the way), they all sang Happy Birthday to me. THEN the Rwandan students sang to me in Kinyarwandan. THEN the Japanese students sang to me in Japanese. The Rwandans sang in French. The Chinese sang. The Albanians sang. The Canadian (Hi John!) sang! SEVEN SONGS!

It was truly the most wonderful thing. Unexpected. Unplanned. Perfect.
