Let me explain. It was really a big birthday party. We had about 8 PCV's who had birthdays in February. But what was really special was having one person turning 60 and one person turning 70 years young. They were elected King and Queen of the prom hands down. Everyone in the first picture posted above never had a prom before. You can see that we Peace Corps volunteers can look pretty good once we wash that village mud off our faces. Well lets get back to our King and Queen, that would be Carl and Susan. Since Carl is my senior, I of course try to compete with him. We both had on new Moldovan shoes. Whose points were pointier? Of course Carl is quite a gent with the ladies....so, I had to too. And Carl is no wall flower when it comes to dancing, so I had to do that too. Now don't get the idea we were chasing skirts. Especially not plaid ones! There was a lot of good dancing at this prom. One of the things Moldovans admire and are a little bit jealous of, is how Americans can get down when its time to dance. And of course, we had the cake and candles. Carl took care of blowing them out. La Mulți Ani to all our volunteers celebrating February birthdays.
