A Celebratory Week
This past week we celebrated five months in Bolivia. The time has flown by, and we are excited to say that we feel right at home in Cochabamba. Lindsay keeps saying, “If we could send all of our friends and family down on a plane, it would be perfect.” And that sums up what we’re feeling. Yes, we miss our family and our friends, but we love it here. And thanks to the internet, we are able to keep in touch just fine.
And yesterday we celebrated Lindsay’s 24th birthday. We went to a leadership conference (the Global Leadership Summit, produced by Willow Creek) until two, then stopped for ice cream, a tradition we started with Grover and Nelvia on our first anniversary.
We also celebrated her birthday on Thursday at our language school, since we didn’t have class on Friday. They had a cake for her, although contrary to the Bolivian tradition, her face wasn’t smashed into it. 🙂
