Sean with the Greek attaches.
Trinh with COL Lubomir (he's a ladies' man, very smoooth, but nice guy though). I dropped a dish of food at a reception once, and he happened to stand next to me. He took the blame to save me embarrassment... I've never forgotten that. And he was always my reception buddy when Sean sometimes left me to do business.
Sean with Axel (German DAT) and Lubomir. Axel is a funny, happy, upbeat guy.
Trinh & Sean with Peter & Penny (British DAT and wife). Peter & Penny were a nice, warm couple. We had them over for dinner once and made a spicy penne pasta with chicken... Sean & I tend to eat very hot, spicy food, and didn't realize that our dish was too spicy for P&P, until we noticed they were on their 5th glass of water each! They were so polite, they kept on eating as if it were the best pasta they'd ever had... as they downed glass after glass of water. :)
