But, oh the rewards of it all when the 4 couples who came dug in and had themselves a big American Thanksgiving dinner. 6 Brits, 1 Frenchmen, and 1 woman from Prague left us a bit worried that our American foods would be ill received. Yet, most came back for seconds and the wine was always topped up. (Below are our Breacon Becon hiking, Utah red-neck loving British friends Alex and Vic).
We couldn't ask for much more. After dinner Pictionary was played, with four different accents and nationalities around the table making the game a long slow process (oh and the wine and cognac didn't help either). By 11:20pm people were tired, stuffed, and drunk. The night ended with guests leaving with doggy bags in hand and a small taste of an American holiday that leaves me thankful for making new friends in a country that I am coming to love as the weeks pass. So to all I say Happy Thanksgiving.
