Christmas 2010

Adelaide couch surfing, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

Here is the inside of Matilda with Christmas cards on display and a bouquet of sweet peas and cornflowers Marion gave me. Doesn’t she look Christmassy? Looks like “Santa Claus” has come to visit….

Fabio, Marion, Me and Jack

On Christmas day there was to be a gathering of Couch surfers in Marialta park. So Marion and I stuffed and cooked a chook on the 24th and then put together a cheese and cherry board with dips and crackers and Marion made some delicious vege burghers along with a bottle of wine and a couple of beers we set off. Problem was Morialta park is large and we couldn’t find the group so we ended up having a very relaxed picnic, just the 4 of us.

We did miss our family but it would be one of the most relaxed and stress free Christmases I have had. The weather was perfect and the company was congenial. Fabio is from Columbia, a new migrant who is working very hard to make a home for his wife and young son when they come to join him next year. and Marion is our couch surfing hostess and a kind and generous person, sharing her house and time with us, and this is the spirit of Christmas.
