I had two birthday parties today, one at school and one at a pub. I am so lucky to be here in Brazil and surrounded by such wonderful people. Thanks to all who sent me birthday greetings, it was so lovely to hear from everyone. I am filled with gratitude for all of you - you are the wind beneath my wings.
This pic is at school. I couldn't ask for a nicer group of coworkers.
And later on, at the pub... the second pub, that is. Turns out that the one I had chosen is closed on Tuesday evenings, so there was a mad flurry of phone calls to change the location and then all was well.
Everyone wanted a turn at photos, so I did my best to run around the table and get pics with everyone. I think some of the pictures ended up on other people's cameras, so maybe I can add them later.
Me being a goober...
