Christmas this year was great, though simple. My friend Cherry, a missionary from the Philippines, was on her way to Thailand after working in IAENE for a year, and decided to visit me in Recife :) It was fun! It was great speaking fast/fluent English with her without having to worry about speaking slow or explain some terms lol.
It's was also the 2nd time I spend Christmas in a tropical area, so guess what!? We went to the beach on Sunday :)
