Word Wednesday: Cadouri

giftsAs I may have mentioned, I am fortunate to live in a town where there are other American volunteers.  Occasionally I get to spend time with the lovely ladies in this picture, two of whom are fellow Peace Corps volunteers, one in Health Education and the other in Community and Organizational Development.  The third is a Fullbright English Teaching Assistant, serving for 9 months at the local University.  About a week ago, we finally had a chance to carry out our “secret snowflake” gift exchange (which was supposed to happen before Christmas) and a lovely time was had by all!  I’m not sure whether the best cadouri* (gifts) are the items we exchanged, or the people I spent the afternoon with!

*approximate pronunciation: “cah-DOH-oo-ree”
