Well, for the first time since arriving in Kazakhstan I had a good dinner.
Shrimp and fried rice. It was such a treat. I really wanted dessert which was crepes with bananas and ice cream. I started to order it and declined to have it after all. DH did have it and it looked very good. But, I was facing a 12 hour night off with no food so I chose to have a snack midway instead of the dessert. It's all about choices I guess.
When I was through with dinner I was VERY full. I was surprised at that. I guess it was eating slowly and drinking a lot of water.
We complimented the chef who said he would send "Christmas Dinner" of turkey and mashed potatoes to work with us tomorrow. (he does it on Christmas Eve which is tomorrow for us.
We gave all the waitresses cards with a tip for Christmas. I gave my favorite waitresses some Native American jewelry I bought in OK before leaving home.
I had a very pleasant day off with DH.
I know you are all very busy in the states. Try to make the best choices you can but enjoy your holiday!
