The Blue

As some of you might know, I was elected to be the treasurer of the Yei Welfare Committee a couple of weeks ago. Our first mission? Whip the tukul that was built last year into shape, create a bar and have a party. Our given deadline? Two weeks...

We did it though - yesterday was the grand opening of The Blue: the combined bar and hangout we created. And it was a success too, with lots of visitors and a brisk sale in the bar. Off course the free finger food got legs to go on as well, and the dance floor saw a fair bit of use by guests from all nations.
 Not the best stocked bar in the world, but far from the worst.
 Our Peruvian friends brought snack - very tasty.

 More than half the party was outdoors.
Dancing - or at least moving around on the dance floor - was popular
Dancing, dancing...
And to top it off, the final tally shows a nice profit too - nowhere near enough to make us rich, but plenty to keep the bar open. And we so plan to keep it open, Fridays and Saturdays to begin with, stretching to every day of the week if the interest warrants it.
