1-13-2016 Old Russian New Year

Eric, Terry and Trish went to Yuri and Ingrid's for Old Russian New Year.  That included dinner and then the tradition of each
person wadding up newspaper, Yuri lighting it on fire, pointing a flashlight at it, and looking at the shadow that appears on a
sheet beyond it.  Everyone agrees on what the shadow looks like, and that is supposed to hold a prediction for what the new
year will bring each person.  Eric couldn't remember everyone's prediction, but his was a boat, which is kind of funny because that's what he already got in 2015, and we really don't need another one.

The mangrove trees were flowering on the river, and those are really beautiful.
