Christmas Party in Ivory Coast

I had the chance to join Gregg for the Employee Christmas Social/Devotional in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.  I really enjoy going to Abidjan... the skyscrapers, the wide multilane roads and a beautiful lagoon.  It is a breath of fresh air.

The employees wanted to surprise us and planned the social to take place at Coconut Village on the beach.  It was a great surprise.  We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas program under palm trees next to the beach.  We sang Christmas carols in French (their national language) and enjoyed some local cuisine.  A great trip.      

When in Rome... do as the Romans do!

We've been to Rome before.  On that visit we tossed a coin in Trevi fountain and it worked!  We came back!  So.... we tried it again.  It would be wonderful to return.

It's a great place with great food.  And for those of us who don't have a McDonalds, this find was a real treat.  But what to chose?  I chose the Leonardo.

Penne pasta al dente with arrabiata sauce and lasagne.  Magnifique!

The perfect ending to a perfect day... gelato.  Scott and Melita Dunn were with us.  Melita found a cone that was just her size.  And yes, he's having Nutella gelato.
