Here comes Johnny Cotton Tail....

I thought I'd share a chain of emails that was sent between a few expats today (I've changed their names for privacy's sake)...

Any suggestions on how we could distribute some Easter Egg Chocolates on Sunday to local children?
(throwing them at them as we drive-by isn't an option)

I don’t know but I’ll start making you bunny ears along with a tail.

All families go to the beach on Eastern Sunday, we can go in the morning to the beach and give the kids the candies.

I like that idea… then we’ll go back to the pool and get drunk and play Easter music…

Hip-hop.

Arrrhhggghhh...... Okay...what a cheeseball joke at the end there.... but I guess I'm not the only one that feels the difference between the expat life in MG and the real life in MG..


In the big picture....handing out Easter chocolates won't make much of a difference...but I think...all of the little day-to-day things - like these simple gestures - add up along the way, and end up making a big difference.


And I can't wait to see Johnny wearing a bunny tail and ears.
