Jan 23 - Meatloaf for Supper

Quite a meatloaf tonight.  Looks like meatloaf sandwiches tomorrow?




Stayed home, but went out for a Saturday BBQ at some Australian friends of Gary.  Got to taste Pavlova cake (made with egg whites, like a meringue, served with cream and fresh fruit) and 4&20 Australian meat pies.

On Sunday night, had dinner with a doctor friend of Gary's, and his wife and daughter, at a Italian restaurant at the Beach Hotel.  Was a nice evening. He was from Iraq, studied in the UK, left IRAQ in 2002, son a doctor in US, daughter finishing school as a pharmacist. Was able to leave IRAQ with his family because he was offered a position in Kuwait as a dean of a school.  Said he will retire in Dominica, as he "bought" a citizenship there.
