May 25th: Happy 21st Birthday Jerry!

Posted in India on May 25, 2012

Hey everyone! Tomorrow is Jerry's twenty-first birthday. We decided to celebrate tonight because we will be traveling all day tomorrow.

We couldn't go to work today because there was only skilled work to do. Not that we are not skilled or anything.. :) We did laundry, chilled, and packed for Agra! Jess did laundry for the first time! At 10 AM, Shreya, Arun, Quinn, Roni, Alex, and myself went into town to hit the bank and run some other errands. We also bought some new headphones for Jer, as a b-day gift, because he lost his last weekend in Udaipur. Madan's brother, Har Lal, ordered a cake from a bakery and picked it up for us, with candles saying twenty-one. It was super nice of him!

After dinner, Alex and I brought out the cake and we all sung Happy Birthday! He was so surprised! I am so happy that it all worked out :)! It's been such a great night. We're so lucky to have Jerry on this trip. He's the only boy and has to put up with all eleven girls. He kills a lot of bugs for us, let me tell you. He's such a hard worker and we love hearing about his life in Singapore.
