Christmas Day in Dhaka-a recap

We spent a quiet Christmas in Dhaka. Christmas eve (day!) Dave worked and in the evening, we had a wonderful dinner at our neighbor’s house. They invited another couple over and we had a great meal and interesting conversation. It was really nice to just walk across the hall afterwards to go home. Christmas morning, Dave had a tennis lesson (yes, it’s still about 75 degrees here!) and then we opened some gifts. Christmas morning we were invited to brunch at the home of an Australian friend that lives within the Australian High Commission compound grounds. We ate “pancakes” (aka crêpes) with blueberries (you absolutely cannot get them in Dhaka!) and yogurt. We headed home for some more gift opening and an afternoon nap. We went for a great cocktail hour at our friends house (they have kids little older and younger than Catherine) and also had some hot chocolate. We went home and packed for northern Thailand-we left the next day!
The photos here are of us opening gifts. Thank you Aunt Sue and Uncle Nick for the beautiful pink sweater for Catherine.
