Long time, No post

Hello lovelies.

I apologize for the significant lack of posts lately - that can be attributed to me coming down with the flu. Let me just say it sucks to stay up all night with no parents (or houseparents) with a fever. Thank goodness I'm feeling better!!!! And starting to catch up....

Well the most exciting thing that happened recently is Middle Eastern/Indian Subcontinent Regional Day!! It was truly fabulous! It went remarkably well. I led a small yoga workshop in the spiritual center (which by the way, is such a glorious location). Later on, we had a GREAT dinner in the dining hall. Because Regional Day coincided with a UWC International Board Conference at Pearson we had 80 extra people. Let's just say it was a mighty crammed cafeteria! The naan was piled high and we had bakclava and lassi for dessert! Butter chicken, aloo gobi, rice, and naan for dinner. It was awesome. I had at least 10 girls come running to me for clothes, and I gladly handed out Indian suits. Everyone looked beautiful.

We had a wedding theme for the show and my dear friends Itamar and Zahida had a marvelous Jewish wedding while we observed so much wonderful Middle Eastern/Indian culture. I was initially rehearsing for 4 dances but was only able to do one. It was well worth it though. I'll try hooking up a link to the video, don't know if it will work. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=528445313&ref=profile#/video/video.php?v=1249058831240&ref=mf

I'll attach some photos soon.

Besides that, it's our last week before project week!!! I'm headed to Saltspring Island.

I'm going to go catch an early night (breakfast duty tomorrow).

Love you all,

  1. Hi Emmy: Are you really at school or on an extended incredible holiday? This sounds like a fascinating experience and I love sharing it with you via your posts. Glad that you're feeling better after your bout with the flu: I had it too so I know what you suffered. Stay well: load up on your fruits, veggies and get lots of rest. Hugs. Guider M.
