Happy Thanksgiving

We started our Thanksgiving tradition in 2001 by inviting friends and locals to our house for the holiday. We continued the tradition in Japan. This year we decided to invite local friends plus a nice very young American girl to our house for Thanksgiving. We found and purchased what appears to be the only turkey in Nepal ($75 for an 11 pound turkey...such a bargain). We made arrangements to borrow chairs, use an oven, bake some stuff and bought all the necessary accoutrements.

The holiday began as many people's do, Sandy, with her head bowed giving an invocation, “oh god...” Unfortunately, the location of this was over the toilet. We exchanged places, me sitting her bowing to the great white goddess. We decided to put our holiday on hold for a couple of days.
