New Years

Well, it's almost 4:00 am on New Years Day. We've had a wonderful party, with 7 guests all told. It was a little lopsided, 6 of them were women, and the one male guest we had, left early (he had more than one invite). Curiously, most of the guests were ex- East German, so there was quite a bit of discussion of German society east and west and what things have been gained and lost since the wall fell. If you want a taste of what it was like in East Germany, watch the film "The Lives of Others" (Wikipedia).

We had rice with a chickpea sauce, fondue, and various cakes, snacks, plus various teas and various juices. One of our guests brought a bottle of wine and shared it with some of the other guests (note: Baha'i do not drink alcohol). I played some guitar and the Loreena McKennit CDs were played. Generally I think a good time was had by all. :-)
