Birthday Fun..

As I mentioned before, my Gramie's birthday happened to fall on her last day here in La Paz!
Because her life has been so special, we had to "celebrate" it in 2 days! :)

I took the day off on Friday and we went out to lunch at a French place in the area called "La Comedie." As you can see, it is shaped like a boat....kind of fun!

We had a yummy lunch of stuffed salmon, llama and sardine sandwiches!
Then we headed a few blocks over the La Paz's very own, Red-bus Tour!

Esteban (and of course Gramie) had never done it. So we enjoyed our informative tour of the city complete with historical antectdotes and pretty sights!

One funny part of the tour was when we went to plug in our headphones, the lady informed us that in order to hear the tour in English, we had to plug it into Japanese....of course!

Then on Saturday, her REAL birthday, we had coffee with some of my girlfriends at school.

After coffee did a few things on the internet including introducing Gramie to skype for the first time and hearing Ella sing "Happy Birthday" to her!) and then headed to Esteban's house for lunch.

We had a nice time eating some Bolivian dishes, hearing more stories and celebrating!

After lunch we went to a few more places in the city and then dropped Gramie off at her hotel for a nice rest before getting up at 2 in the morning for her early flight the next day!

Bye Gramie and thanks for celebrating your birthday with us!!
