Oct 31st turned out to be a real treat for us as the college decided to spring for a turkey dinner.  Not only are turkeys a rare commodity here but non of us have ovens and the thought of a microwave turkey is not very appealing.  Anne Marie and Gertrude, the wives of two of the teachers, cooked us a couple of fine turkeys with trimmings and it tasted so good.  You can bet that Steve was right in there to help with the carving.  We all felt a little homesick, I think.
