Thanksgiving on Guimaras Island

So we pushed all the beds in our Nippa hut together and slept on one huge bed. We are one big happy Peace Corps family, LoL. :)
My Peace Corps girls: Rachael, Sara, and Shauna. It was a very fun weekend!!! :)
My side of the table: Tom, Laura, and Alicia. Laura was very excited about the turkey... :)
John, Julie, and Becky
Marlo, Justin, and Sara
My dinner :)
Thanksgiving dinner was a success!!!
The finished turkey. Best turkey ever!
So I have the best uncles in the world!!! Uncle Tom and Chris sent me Chips and Salsa in my care package and I saved a bottle for Thanksgiving. So this was our Thanksgiving appetizer. Delicious!!!
Sooo... I kinda helped cook :)

Our friend Alicia (who lives on a farm in the US) was our turkey killer. I did feel sorry for the little guy, but he was very tasty.
We slept in the Nippa huts. I mean can you believe this place?!?!
Soooo beautiful!!!
Playing volleyball.
We ate our Thanksgiving under a Nippa hut :) SO cool!
Beautiful Guimaras
