Today is my third Thanksgiving in Tonga. Every year we (the Peace Corps volunteers and staff) spend an outrageous amount of money on a turkey, scrap together some side dishes, and search the island for cranberry sauce. Yet even though I am in a time zone 19 hours away, the temperature is about 50 degrees warmer, and there is no pumpkin roll, I am still able to celebrate Thanksgiving. And for that I am very thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving to those in Tonga, Transfer, and everywhere in between!
