In the middle of working on several different projects and not having the time to travel between filling out grant applications and conversations with the mayor, I decided to make Thanksgiving happen here in my site, thanks to my mom. She sent me a Thanksgiving care package packed with all the necessities to make an international Thanksgiving dinner, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, apple cider, pumpkin puree and a box of pumpkin cake mix.

I invited my host family, friends, local counterpart and some families that I have become close to during my service to share this American holiday. With the help of some little helpers we whipped up some Thanksgiving magic. We cooked green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potato salad, macaroni and cheese, stuffing and what’s Thanksgiving dinner without cranberry sauce. The only thing that was missing was the…turkey. It’s ok because we enjoyed our vegetarian thanksgiving and had plenty of food to share.
