Third Thanksgiving

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!


  1. Missing you today. Happy Thanksgiving from our township to yours.

  2. Pumpkin rolls for Christmas!! Can't wait til you're home. Make sure you aren't too tanned from all your Tongan time.
