Double Celebrations

An evening of delicious food and laughter, celebrating 55 and 21 years. Our friend was born in Pretoria, S. Africa, hence the flags on his cake. Then a surprise for his son as the 21st candles appeared - he had been in Canada on his actual birthday last month. We sang "Happy Birthday" in English, Portuguese and Turkish.

An international feel to the evening. Dishes from Brazil, Turkey, China, South Africa ... and Glasgow! Chat about life in many far flung places, even the excitement of travelling through the Khyber Pass - not recently I hasten to add.
