Bidding Bonn goodbye

After spending two months in the former capital of the former Western Germany, I am leaving in one hour.  I will take a train back to Freiburg.  As with anyone leaving a place for a long period of time or for good, Filipinos celebrate a despedida, send-off party, or an Abschiedsfeier.  Yesterday I went to one, not for my departure, but for the consul of Philippine Embassy extension in Bonn.  The current consul is being recalled to Manila and the office is Bonn will close down.  A new office will open in Frankfurt.

Like any gathering, the table was awash with food (3 lechons!).  A special program was also organized for the consul and his family.  Here is one of my favorite parts of the program- a dance intermission number:
