roaming the world and enjoying the scenery...

White Elephant

Breck with his puzzles, Alea's jewelry box, and Susan's 2 gobletsQuick wrap up from last night’s activities – it was a crazy stealing laughing drinking eating evening, and as always, most people went home happy. The poor guy who had the very first pick was stuck all night with a beautiful set of unmatched flower drawings and picture frames – but since he and his wife had the final 2 picks last year, my empathy is diminished somewhat! 🙂

Popular swaps included a bottle of lousy Indian wine, a mini hooka traveling kit, a soap/bangles/brass bowl combination, and two sets of fancy goblets (brought by two different people after each received them as Christmas gifts from the same student!). Susan ended the evening with one of the chalice sets, Dave got the hooka, Alea ended up with a fancy incense bowl or jewelry box (depending on your taste), and Breck got 2 Lost puzzles, a “Deal or No Deal” dvd game, and a mini Stonehenge set. Wow!!

School ended today (with only a half day), and we celebrate Christmas tomorrow and get on out of here to Oman. Winter break, here we come!

  1. Hello, Dave and Susan! Your party sounds like fun. I’m glad that it seems people chose/were given one gift that no one could take from them; I hate THAT game—so unseasonal! Olja and I are leaving on Saturday for India Round II. Melissa flies up from Chennai and we ‘do’ Rajasthan, Dharamsala, Shekawati region, Agra…wheee. Can hardly wait. Wishing you the best for the New Year. Heard through the grapevine you are heading back to this part of the world…true?
