Happy Birthday to ME!!
Happy Birthday, Alles Gute, Tillykke med foedselsdagen, Auguri, Feliz Aniversàrio...yes, we celebrated my birthday last week! And I'm pretty sure it was the most international birthday I've ever had!!
Now I try to let you be part of my best day and so far my best week at Kandersteg.
But first a few words to introduce myself: I'm Manu from the most northern region of Italy called South Tyrol and I live close to the border to Austria (motherlanguage German, not Italian!). I like good food, cats, reading and being outside during lunchbreak.
During the last week Spring has definitely begun in this small village in the middle of the Alps. Do you know the beautiful feeling of sunshine on your skin? The smell of sunscreen? Grass under your naked feet? Yes, this is Spring, this is what makes me smile!
But back to my birthday. The day started with a big surprise: I got woken up by all the other Shorties at 7am and they sung Happy Birthday for me – everybody in their own language! It was amazing! Then I got breakfast in bed (it is a very good way to start a day!!), chocolate, a cardgame and a nice birthday-card. But the best thing was: they planned a dinner for me at Cyristal, the small restaurant next to KISC!
So the whole day I was looking forward to dinner and I think I was smiling a lot! Everybody was so nice to me, was greeting me with „Hello birthday-girl“ und was happy together with me! I had a really good day!! Thank you, pinkies!
Workwise we have a lot to do at the moment, because there is a huge group of Saudi Arabian Scouts staying with us. So we have to cook for a lot of people, we have to clean lots of toilets and we're doing a lot of recycling. But as long as you work with the right people you can manage everything!
So, have fun, fun, fun in the sun, sun, sun!
And don't forget: pink is awesome!!
