Pre Birthday drinks

So the pre birthday celebrations continued yesterday. We met our friends Al and Eddie at the Blue Monkey Bar last night and sat outside. It was great! We know quite a lot of their friends now and we were a mixed bunch of ex-pats (Americans, UK, Irish, South Africa...) and natives! The waiters were hilarious, real crowd pleasers and then someone (thanks Al) let them know it was my Birthday. I got a free drink concoction, burning alcohol mixed with other shots until it was green :-) And then a dessert of exotic fruit and the whole outside bar sang Happy Birthday to me. But it was really nice and a pleasant start to my Birthday, a few beers with lovely company !
