Panama November 2017: Lily’s Birthday

Lily and Minga and I honored her birthday with cuatro leches cake while we were staying at the hotel. Lily also celebrated with her family in the village the day after I left. And when she returned to work, she was feted by her colleagues there, along with another colleague who also celebrates his birthday this month. I call that a “birthday season.” 🙂

Happy 39th birthday, Lily, from all of your friends here in the U.S. Lily reads the blog, so if any of you want to send her birthday wishes, you can do so in the Comments section.
