Comedy Night at the Storck Club
Last night Robbie and I went to the Comedy Night at the San Ignacio Hotel, a fundraiser from our Rotary club. It was quite a crowd and we had a bunch of friends with us: Tyson, Eddie, Macarena, two friends of Macarena called Mama and Papa Noel (I think he plays Santa Claus in California), a very nice elderly couple, then the British girl who runs the party shop in town, and besides quite a few Rotarians, also Tobbi and Eva. The comedy show was so-so, some of them we could hardly understand because of their accent, but there were a couple of good ones and some hearty laughs. Robbie almost fell asleep because she had taken a blood pressure pill, so we went home by 10:30 pm. The food was good: I had Lebanese platter (Libanesische Platte) with hummus, chicken, couscous, flat bread and some dips, and Robbie had stuffed and fried Jalapena peppers (HOOOOT!) and grilled potato skins. I had two Virgin Pina Coladas (no alcohol because I was driving and Robbie got tea (which took them about 30 minutes ... maybe they had to pick the tea leaves in India??). Well, all in all it was really good that we went out, we don't do it very often and it's always special. Helen took care of our dogs, so we didn't have to worry about them or the house at all, we are very happy that she offers to take care of them when we are gone.
One more picture of a really pretty visitor we had at the house the other day. The bird is called a Trogon, it has extremely bright colors!! The scientific name is Trogon Violaceous (for those who are interested. Enjoy!
