From Hanna:

Happy New Year 2011!!

“Hopefully this year can be filled with hope that will benefit us all. Our handbags team in Aceh celebrated the new year with friends and family. We may not have had bonfires or trumpets, but we did have fellowship and thats enough to make us thankful for our past and continue with high spirits for our future. After we exchanged gifts we ate dinner and sung karaoke till 1 AM. We had so much fun!”
