When our youngest daughter, Hannah, graduated nursing school, we offered to take her on a trip to South America. In the sweetest voice, she asked if we could include her boyfriend, William (her now husband). Of course, we agreed. He wanted to help pay for his portion of the trip, but we told him that his portion would be the lunch tab in Uruguay. It was a wonderful meal in Colonia del Sacramento, one we will never forget. Here we posed with the owner of the restaurant, Los Kamikases, after having written our names on the walls.
