And a shot from behind our table.......
And from left: Anna, Ivan, some really pale white guy, Josh and Jess
Unfortunately - they had no tequila but they did have cold beer and live music. Many Peace Corps and World Teach people were here for a typical Friday night at Bully's. There was live music by a guy named James Thomas who gave everyone a free cd. Small world as he ironically enough - grew up in Spokane on the South Hill near Rosauers and went to the University of Idaho and knew of Uniontown. For those of you that don't know me well enough to know what I was born in Spokane and was raised on the South Hill and my family's farm where my father grew up is in Uniontown, WA - literally a town of 100 people and he knew exactly where it was. Crazy being 6000+ miles from home and having that connection. He played some acoustic guitar that was a cross between Marley and The Grateful Dead. His closer was a hilarious song about living on Kosrae (e.g. waiting 2 hours for a taxi). I recorded some of it on video Shary and will show you upon return to US - you will get a kick out of it.
We then retired back at Josh/Jess' apartment at the Nautilus for pizza, beer and delightful conversation.
Now, time for bed after some serious prayers for my father who is in ICU in Bellingham after a fall doing yardwork at home - hang in there Dad - I love you. I'm told he is stable and improving and that I shouldn't worry but of course I am.
