It's hard for me to believe that a year ago I was in the US on a quick, last minute trip due to ongoing illnesses. The year has really flown by and here I am, still in Tanzania, celebrating another birthday, my 36th. I am so happy that this past year I have been able to put a lot of my health issues behind me and concentrate more on work and enjoying my life here.
Thanks, everyone, for all the well-wishes, emails, Facebook messages, notes, etc on my birthday. It really means a lot to me to be remembered. I had a very nice day. I spent the morning at the one and only nice coffee shop in town for a work meeting. It was much nicer than it sounds because my coworker is also a friend and I enjoyed a cool iced tea while we planned and chatted. I also spent a few hours with these ladies.
Then I got to go out to dinner with this guy.
Here's what was on the other side of the table.
Wuw! I can't believe that I actually look like this because this is what I still think I look like.
Anyways, here's to another great year of getting older, to health, happiness and meaningful work!
