Ilana and I shared Thanksgiving with about 25 other foreign volunteers for various organizations (World Teach, Project Trust, Wings for Humanity, Peace Corps). Some folks who do med-evacs for our region were able to fly in 2 turkeys from Georgetown... sadly they had to die to fly.

Everyone brought different dishes to contribute. We made the biscuits and Mom’s famous Magic Cookie Bars, which were a huge hit.
We even had a big hairy local special guest join us for desert. A face-sized tarantula appeared on the ceiling as we were finishing the meal. Springing into action, one of the boys who lives in the house caught the beast and brought her down for all of us to enjoy. Do I smell a new tradition in the Echevarria-Stewart house?
|Didn't you mother ever tell you not to play with tarantulas at the Thanksgiving table?|
|Hey Alex, you want to come down to Thanksgiving next year?|
