Happy Birthday to me
Two weeks after my actual birth day, the whole gang of newbies went out to dinner to celebrate two birthdays - mine and that of the other librarian. We went to a local restaurant called Dar Tej and since I wasn't smart enough to bring my camera, you're going to just have to make do with this link. I told them it was a dual birthday when I made the reservation, and we settled on a limited menu as a way of helping the kitchen cope with a group of 18. For 25 dinars they provided a pre-appetizer snack, a choice of three appetizers, mains that included steak, whole fish or seafood pasta, and fresh melon for dessert. We brought our own birthday cake and paid extra for wine, which thank heaven is now available. After we paid the bill, the owner came out with floral tributes for each of the birthday "girls". I don't know how they make any money.
