Pookie's mondays ! She is thursty because, she said, we had celebrated too much !
No, this is not quite true, but we were invited to an Indian restaurant, by our Indian friend, for his wife's birthday and his retirement.
About 45 people were invited and as so often in Waterloo, many nationalities found themselves around the tables.
They were from Bresil, India, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, UK and I surely forgot some others. We had a lot of fun and no language problems as most of them spoke more than two other languages. We knew each other for many years, but hadn't seen us for quite a long time. Most of the people were parents of classmates from their son who was the first friend of our son, because when they met for the first time they both were 3 weeks old. We have a picture of both of them, laying side by side, one with a lot of black hair, looking like a hedgehog and the other like a punk, nearly bold with just some blond hairs standing up in the middle.
I know my friend since 1965, we worked together in the same company and he married a french girl two years after our wedding.
What I wanted to point out here is, that no matter from where you come , people usually get always very well together, you can also fight with your neighbour, for that you don't need somebody from another country.
After a very nice indian supper, indian dancers made a show for us, which was really very nice. Here are some pictures.
After the Indian dances, girls from the french island "Ile Maurice" danced too
more pictures of the dancers are here

But I commented anyway and not only with "nice pictures" when there were only a text !
