Yesterday was Michal’s birthday, which led to us playing a little trick on him by pretending we hadn’t remembered. In the morning Luke did an amazing job of hanging out with Michal and pretending to be oblivious to his special day. Meanwhile, we told the whole group to come to the instructor Homestay house at noon to help prepare lunch…though everyone else (except Michal) turned up early to make a cake for the birthday boy and prepare for the big surprise.
When Michal turned up we kept him waiting out in the yard using all our powers of distraction. His face was a picture when we finally brought out his cake and gift.
Here are a few photos of the moment we revealed the surprise…
