An invitation to dinner

I have another very nice neighbor one floor down who I've chatted with off and on for several months now. Well, she's hosting a 16 year old boy from Spain for the next month and I met him last night. He's very nice and speaks English rather well. I talked to Golf afterward and we agreed it would be a nice thing to invite them both to dinner at some point during his visit, so I went over to her apartment with my phone number.

Well, turns out Aji (or Agee or Ajee!) never has any other ethnic cuisine other than Spanish food -- and I assume stuff like spaghetti and pizza. Golf offered to cook up a nice Thai meal. I love snatching up an opportunity to meet people from other parts of the world. I want to know more about this exchange program he's with. I wanted to be an exchange student when I was in high school but never knew how to go about it. Never even thought to ASK anyone either! Sheesh! But I think it would be a good opportunity for Aidan when he's a teen. I'd love him to spend some time in Europe because he is going to get plenty of exposure to Asian culture with our trips to Thailand in the future, so exposure to European culture would be very beneficial. Not even I have ever been to Europe or the UK but I would really like to go someday. And I will!

In the meantime, I'm going to hopefully get to enjoy the company of a young Spanish boy and our lovely neighbor for some fine conversation and food. :)

Amy, I don't know what I did, but please try again. I would of COURSE, want you to be in my yahoo group!

Try again. I must have done something wrong.

Wow! I wish I lived next door :) I would LOVE to have some home made Thai food and see how it compares to what we used to get in Seattle and Portland. Nothing beats some good Pad Thai so spicy it makes you nose run :)
