Darwin was given a box of instant coffee by an Indonesian coworker who just returned from visiting his relatives back home. The coworker was more generous than he knew; inside the box was a packet that contained a 2000 Indonesian rupiah bill!
We've won 22.22 cents.
Seven years ago today, we received another surprise gift, unexpected but welcome. Unlike the rupiah, this gift was priceless.
Happy birthday, Julia!
