New Year's Eve

For those of you who don't know, Jon's birthday is on New Year's Eve.  This makes for easy planning for me as there is usually already a party to go to!  He even received a surprise birthday cake from our two recently hired employees (site engineer, Aminul and engineer tech, Sohel).  We missed a planned hay ride, but went to the after party to have snacks and play games.  We rang in the new year for the second time with a midnight jump in the pool.  It was a little warmer this year (about 15?? degrees Celius air temperature).

 Left to right Nomen, Jon, Aminul, Sohel and Nazmul.  Nomen and Nazmul are part of the Contractor's site management.

I gave Jon a Cricket bat.  It is a popular sport in Bangladesh so we would like to give it a try.  (I don't believe it is actually made by Nike despite the logo....)
 Jon and Nathan playing a game involving moving a plastic cup around with straws and the air from ballons.  There was a bit of sabatage involved. Jon's balloning experience came in handy and I reaped the benifits of his victory bag of peanut M&M's.

The plunge was graciously captured and shared by a friend who abstained from the fun.
