Marine Ball 2022


John and I attended the Marine Ball last night at the Ambassador’s residence, Palacio Bosch. It was fun to see everyone dressed up. Instead of a sit-down dinner, we had the presentation of the colors and a few speakers, then drinks and hors d’oeuvres both inside and on the lawn outside. We ducked out before the dancing started.

Thursday night we had our first dinner guest, a woman who will be going to orientation in January to become a member of the Foreign Service as an office management specialist. She’s a friend of a friend of a friend and in Buenos Aires to brush up on Spanish. We had a nice time chatting with her.

Friday was a holiday and it was nice to spend the day at home reading. I finished a Liane Moriarty book, “Apples Never Fall,” a fun fiction. We enjoyed a good movie last week, “Loving Adults” – lots of twists and turns! I caught up with John and watched “The Inside Man” while he was out to dinner with the Canadians. We also watch a fun French crime drama and started the latest season of “The Crown.”
