Our language helper had our family and another over for dinner at his parent's one night.
It was quite an affair, like most dinners hosted in this country.
Biryani, dolma, greens, cabbage salad, eggplant salad, okra soup, smoky yogurt water
The husband of the other family is also a teacher with Doug, and he introduced us to Surprise.
Surprise's mother is sitting to my right.
She raised 10 children.
Here she is smiling at some pictures.
