Monday, December 12:  Tonight a big group meets at the most high-class restaurant in Nizwa, Peppercorns, for Marcia’s birthday.  Marcia is a lovely and lively lady who takes care of everyone.  She has had parties at her house for both long-time and new teachers.  She invited me over a couple of times, once to watch the amazing movie Melancholia and another time the British sitcom Ab Fab at her cozy red villa. I’ve gone there for coffee and her amazing chocolate cake. In October, when I was desperate to rent a car, she offered to drive me to Muscat; there we had a lovely dinner together.  She’s an Aussie with a heart as big as a mountain.  She says she loves people and she loves to entertain.  It’s no wonder she has so many friends who love her dearly.

Happy birthday, Marcia!!

Happy birthday, Marcia!!

Marcia has been in Oman for about seven years and her dream is to buy a little cottage on an island off the coast of Australia and retire there.  Even though she’s saving money to realize this dream, she’s never stingy with her money, her time, or her kindness…

lots of folks from the university come to help marcia celebrate at peppercorns
