It was a lot like an American birthday party except the food was completely different (a lot of fish, beets, and coleslaw-type salads), and almost every person there stood up to make a toast to the birthday girl.” ********************* To unsubscribe, please go to: http://www.listserv.uga.edu/archives/ and type in SISA-L in the "list name" box on the left.
