a tico thanksgiving




saturday night we finally celebrated thanksgiving. one of my coworkers who is from the states organized a lovely dinner with some of her old usa coworkers from her last job here in costa rica. it was a mix of about 10 people from the usa and 5 tico boyfriends/husbands and paris's sister. there was a 17 pounds turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, candied yams, cranberry sauce, apple crisp, and pumpkin pie! after everyone was completely stuffed we all went around saying what we were thankful for, mostly being able to have a lovely little dinner with new friends in our home away from home. all in all it was a great success :)

* sorry for such poor quality photos but in just two weeks i'll be using my brand new camera!
