Indian Ladies Party

Living on a compound is like living in a mini-UN. There are people from all over the world, staying in one place. My children play with kids from India, Japan, Korea, Scotland, England, Singapore, and the U.S. I personally love meeting women from different countries. Last Sunday, I was invited to a Ladies Only Indian Party.

I didn't really have time to put together a costume, but went anticipating some fun. I was greeted by a room full of women from our compound dressed beautifully in Indian Saris. Everyone was laughing and talking. We had ordered Indian take-out food and shared our dishes with one another. I had a dal dish that was really great, along with grilled stuffed mushrooms. I enjoyed trying other dishes as well. The naan was yummy, as usual.

After we ate, my friend turned on some Indian music and then insisted on everyone dancing. I love dancing, though I'm terribly awkward at it. Some ladies were quite shy, but after a couple of songs, everyone relaxed and enjoyed the dancing.

I had a great time chatting with my friends, eating the yummy food, and dancing. I can't wait for more get- togethers.
