47Trip End ??? ??, 2006
I contemplated cooking Thanksgiving myself, but then decided to have a professional do it. I hired Carmen Alicia to cook Thanksgiving dinner and bought all the ingredients. She started cooking on Wednesday and finished around 4 on Thursday. It was her first Thanksgiving meal (It's not a recognized Colombian holiday) and it was terrific. We had two appetizers, turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes,rice and beans, mixed veggies and two pies
The following day, Susan, Anya and I went to the hair dresser. Initially,only Anya was going to get a new do, but then we all decided to get new hair. Our hair came out great and we felt totally pampered. That night, Susan got her new suits and blouses! She is now a totally new woman. She looks fantastic!!! Anya's hair is great too! We went to dinner at a great Thai restaurant and headed home for an early night. We had a 9:30 flight to catch to Medellin.
I really missed being home for Thanksgiving, but I felt soooo incredibly fortunate to have my friends with me. Holidays are hard at times and Thanksgiving would have been especially hard without such great friends!!!
