Christmas 2008

Happy Christmas morning

What can be said about this surreal Christmas in the sun with icicles and snowmen and 35C? This was our 2nd Christmas in Guyana. It started with a lovely Christmas gathering in NCERD where we sang carols and Miss Ali provided lunch for the department.

On Christmas Day it was seriously raining and the yard was flooded which necessitated going to the Pegasus Hotel by taxi in our long boots. Not the ideal entrance to a posh hotel but needs must.

We had lunch with Jane, Jud, Lucia and her Mexican friend. It was a very quiet affair and over in a couple of hours. But we did get the turkey and ham but no mince pies, Christmas pud or cake. But the company was good.
