Funny how I function. Ana Lucia never told me she was moving to South Africa. Jamile told me, and said they were having a farewell party, so I invited myself to come. Lucky, it seems to have worked well.
Ana seemed truly surprised to see me. I was the surprise at her surprise party.
I spent the day with JAmile, who is renowned for her lateness. We planed to arrive earlier than everyone else and in my heart I would be happy if I managed to get there before the party was over. With Jamile, you never know...
God (or Alah) was on our side and we got there one minute before Ana's car parked in front of the gate. Some girls even saw "someone"running inside.
I hide under a chair (charmiiing) and waited for her to find me.
It was amazing to meet her after so long. And in such an emotional occasion.
Ana Lucia lived in Dubai for 8 years and along this time she touched many lives and hearts. Lately she was involved in some charity projects and from what I heard, they were a total success.
I was lucky to have her cross my path and even luckier to still be part of her friends list.
The party was amazing, with lots of music, laughter and stories. The speeches were very touching and I cried my eyes out.
Ana, thank you for being such an amazing person and for being part of my life. I am very happy I had the opportunity to crash your party!
