|Homemade Indian food...and cold beer!|
This weekend I took the kids to the birthday party of one of their friends from school. We really do have quite a diverse population in the school, and this child is Indian. While I won't publish his name, he has a most unusual one, which gets pronounced in a funny way by the Brazilians (who love to add "y"s to the end of words like "Picky-nicky" for picnic).
In any case, it was the kind of kids' party that I will miss. The kids were gone from the second they entered--I saw them two hours later, sweaty and happy from bouncing and kicking and playing air hockey. The food was beyond outstanding--the mom had made the Indian food herself--chicken curry, some pea dish where I discovered that the long green thing was not okra but in fact a large pepper (fortunately there was lots of cold beer to the rescue) and a tofu/tomato dish.

We were literally the last people to leave about five hours later. They were taking down and popping balloons, clearing the table and pretty much escorting us to the door. I think the birthday boy's mom breathed a deep sigh of relief.
I will be traveling the week of March 31 and posts may be later or shorter than usual. Still counts for the year of daily posts! ;)
