Okay, so I'm a bit behind on some postings, but since it isn't quite Easter yet, then I'm in the clear. Huh?
I could count on one hand the number of times Chris & I have been out without the girls while in Dhaka. Well, not counting balls or other work functions.... balls are part of being a diplomat, right?
For Valentine's Day, a friend organized a wonderful night at a local restaurant and invited a big group to join them. They told us the menu choices, price, location and when to show up. It was so fun just to show up and have no part of the organization :)
As it was a "school night", we didn't stay out too late, but enjoyed our time away, a nice meal, the company of good friends and a quick dip on the dance floor. After almost 20 Valentine's together, some on patrol, some on deployment, some on duty (are you seeing a one sided pattern here?), it was still wonderful to spend it with my favorite Valentine. And it was especially nice to spend it with him in person and celebrated on the real date of the occasion.
