    ... dress party at Lake Mahinapua. The choices included: gender swap, pensioners, superheroes, or dressing up as something with the first letter of your name. The last one won! It did seem like the coolest one, and the one where everybody would be most unique, but with only a few hours notice and only a one hour stop to find a cheap outfit - it was definitely the hardest of them all.

    ... not engaging in conversation for extended periods of time. It's weird, I don't appear to get lonely out here, or at home for that matter, and neither do I feel the loss of conversation with people. But i do miss time to sit and "just be" I'm finding it ************* the move constantly, and planning ways to fill a day/have deadlines etc, whilst trying to see things to make memories and make the most of this trip.

    ... Santa and everyone got to stuff a stocking with $20 worth of joy. It was so fun unpacking all the stockings and seeing what everyone was able to find for $20.

    We all spent some time FaceTiming family back home and wishing them all a Merry Christmas, then it was time for our Christmas feast: sofrito mashed potatoes, fresh grilled asparagus, cranberry salad, garlic bread and the most amazing lamb cutlets I have ever tasted. It was ...
