Baan Thai, Buenas Noches, Bon Voyage, Good-Bye!

Today is Fiesta Day here at International House. We are celebrating a summer well-done and the my approaching departure. Pam, Hilina, Jayne, Tara, and dear Mister Ron and I went to Baan Thai for lunch, where we ate rice, rice, and more rice. Rice with soy sauce, rice with sweet and sour sauce, rice with chili paste, rice with coconut milk... oh, the rice. I'm so glad God came up with the concept of rice. and friends.

Sannu came this morning for our last one-on-one time together, and she finished her story. It's nothing earth-shaking, and "not the greatest work of fiction in our time," but it is her own, and it is in English, and she has every right to be proud of her accomplishment. She can't wait til I get back. :)

Tonight we will party with those who know how: Hispanics. My Tuesday/Thursday ESL group is bringing heaps and heaps of food like tostadas, tamales, and chocoflan. There will be music, games, swimming, and maybe even dancing. Can't wait!

I'm going to spend my day tomorrow doing laundry and packing, so I probably won't post again til I'm back in NC. Thank you to all of you who have been praying for me this summer, and making me feel like my blog is something important to you. You are important to me and I love you!
