... so I hung out with my roommates (from China!) and took the cooking class. It was fun and somewhat boring because there were so many people trying to cut and slice things. I also got burned when I dropped a banana to quickly into a pan of hot oil. Party! Just my pinky though, nothing too serious. The food we made was fried bananas with chocolate sauce, a fruit drink (pineapples strawberries melon and watermelon), and beans, sprouts and lettuce ...
... world events can look like through redecorating the temple. VERY clever. Inside the main temple (behind Diks head, easy to see now that all how hair is gone!) was a painting of a Buddha and many world events - 9/11 twin towers, volcanos, earthquakes, etc. The more ornate 'umbrella' of trinkets, where we bought 3 for $1 each - one for us, one for Sue/Mike/Rosie and one for their wonderful Christmas tree this year. ...

was not what I was hungry for or what but I had like two bites and felt sick so
I asked to go walk around and I ended up finding some ice cream with Rachel.
Just a little scoop of strawberry shortcake. Lastly we hopped back into the van

all my stuff and repacked ...
