Our second Thanksgiving here in Gabon. Last year we had roasted lamb and a huge accompaniment of sides.
This year.....we sprang for turkey! There are no turkeys in Gabon - so turkeys are imported from Europe or the US at a hefty premium! Oh the food was so good! Jacci and her friend co-hosted the Thanksgiving meal. Outside it was 90 degrees, but we're used to warm holidays.
We enjoy sharing Thanksgiving with non-Americans because it gives us a chance to explain the history and meaning of the day. In case you think you know the background of the Pilgrims and of Thanksgiving....take a look here to brush up on your Thanksgiving history!
Here's more Thanksgiving news.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.....oh, and on another positive note. No after hours phone calls for broken toilets or no power! :)
|This picture came up when I did a google search for "African Thanksgiving." They don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Africa, obviously, but this is an amazing picture so I thought I'd share it!|
