My 28th Birthday went over 3 days and it was my first birthday in Mexico. Saturday we celebrated with friends at a beautiful trout restaurant up in the mountains (only about 30 minutes away) called Linda Vista (which means pretty/nice view). The weather was perfect and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view and good fellowship. Sunday Brad and I went downtown to a nice Italian restaurant & had a great time. Monday morning I opened all my pressies from Australia & from Brad! Monday arvo our close friends Alma & Ismael and their family dropped by and gave me some beautiful earrings & flowers. Monday night, I thought the b'day was over but at 7:30pm a family from a nearby village came by with ANOTHER cake & beautiful handmade presents!! 8:30pm we enjoyed meatballs for dinner with the family of 6 that was staying with us for a week. The best present I received was the news that my parents are coming to Oaxaca in September!!! How exciting :) Today I am trying to recover from the flu as we gear up for our first intern of the season to arrive - Tammy.
