All in the same week. So, as you can imagine it has been absolutely productive here. Between everything being decorated green and somone turning the ripe ‘ol age of 27 (site mate), it has been more of a “cultural sharing” week if you will; which is actually part of the reason for being here – to learn, as well as share stuff about where we’re from. And we probably did disappoint. First, I had some neigbors over to celebrate in the goodness of being stubbornly proud of being 2% Irish. Second, my site mate had her host family and few other friends over for her bday. Pic below. PS, yes I did hear about the Gonzaga NCAA incident despite being several kilometers form Spokane. That might have been the happiest day of my life.
