Kolorful, Kichigai and Krazy, la Loquita moves on

Time for another sendoff!!  This time it is la Loquita as was known to call herself - the crazy one as it were.  It could also mean the loquacious one which would also be applicable. As a neuropathology fellow our honoree settled here to get some research and lab experience - we think!  I believe that was the plan anyway but I'm not sure how the whole thing worked out. Nonetheless for the time she was here she was active, gregarious, colorfully dressed and quite a bit of fun.  Even if she did eat gravel and bark for a considerable portion of the time that her presence graced us. We are sad to see her go but realize another chapter is beginning..or will begin when she lands a job in her new specialty.
La Loquita gets the party going! 

Colorful presentation for a colorful person!

Every lady likes an orchid!

As I mentioned she was colorful so we decided to celebrate her that way. We gave her an orchid and a basil plant, some wine to toast her and her future, and a multicolor card signed by as many as possible.
Some wine and Basil??
Either it's a greeting card or a ransom note!

A toast on your head!
Down the hatch!

Finally there was a cake...of course. A multicolored fruit tart that unfortunately contained kiwi thereby preventing her mentor from having any. But it looked good. It was from Whole Foods and we have had them many times.  It was fresh and flavorful.  There is a layer of pastry, topped with pastry cream and then the fruit is embedded therein.  There may also be a coating of unflavored, clear gelatin to bind the fruit together.  It doesn't do that great a job with the blueberries which tend to end up all over the place when this is cut.  Cutting it was a challenge since there was a large turnout but everyone got a small slice, not much more than a Keyla piece. 

A familiar fruit tart!
Also very colorful!
If you were lucky you got this much!
 And so, La Loquita, best wishes para un futuro brillante! BTW she had a habit of speaking in two languages at the same time. She was from Peru after all, I mean Bolivia, no VENEZUELA!
A selfie for the road!
And a final show with the cake hour gang!

Neither is very shy in front of the camera!
Another amigo!

Two handed drinking!
Just in time for a final shot!
