It was belated for both of them, but we claim CASA homework exhaustion in our defense! Tonight we celebrated the birthdays of CASA I’s Duke alumi, Cosette and Andrew, who both had birthdays this week. For the occasion, we headed out to Cairo’s best Lebanese restaurant, Tabouleh. It was a bit of a splurge, as it’s a rather upscale place, but so worth it! I have to say, though, it made me quite homesick for Jordan, particularly for Jafra in downtown Amman, where you can get the same delicious food for a fifth of the price….
It was also really great to get together with the potluck crew, as we do most every weekend, but also have an excuse to get a little dressed up! And now, without further ado, I present to you the birthday kids, pimped out in their gifts from the two-and-a-half-guinea store, which is just like a dollar store … but only 50 cents!:
