Happy Birthday T!

Here's a throwback for you. TEN years ago we were celebrating Teresa's 21st birthday in Cape Town, South Africa.

Teresa got a blowout for the occasion. I wore a fancy new tube top.

We'd spent the last 10 weeks studying abroad in South Africa- traveling around the Eastern Cape, volunteering in townships and studying at the beach.

We'd come to the end of our time and this was a celebration of three different friend's birthdays, all in March, as well as a last hurrah for all of us on the program.

The party was at our favorite spot, just a few blocks from the house in which all 17 of us lived. It was our own Real World: Cape Town. Obz Cafe was where went for coffee, to study and of course, where we discovered hard cider, still one of my favorite drinks. Also, where I learned that some South Africans pronounce jalapeño with a j sound, and will correct you in a very condescending manner if you don't :)

The music consisted of our musical obsessions of that trip: Freshly Ground- a local group, Air, Sigur Rós and the Garden State soundtrack.  

So many good memories! I'm thankful to have had this and so many other adventures with you Teresa! Happy Birthday!!!
