John freaked a lot of folks out on Halloween with his devil eyes! It was fun to watch people start to chat with him then scream when they really looked at his eyes! The embassy does a big trick-or-treating event for the kids and all the sections decorate – it was a fun afternoon!

Monday night John and I stayed up “late” and went to see a German quartet at Teatro Colon. It was our first time seeing an event at the theatre and it was lovely. For one thing, the seats are comfortable with lots of legroom – hoorah! And the place was packed, even for a Monday night 8PM performance.

The weather was so strange this week – it got really chilly and WINDY on Wednesday. The next day it poured all day and evening, which was unfortunate because we were hosting the deputy chiefs of mission from all over South America. John went to the airport to pick up the Director General of the Foreign Service in the morning, then had an evening event at Bosch Palace with the attendees. Friday my former boss and friend Angela left the conference to spend the day with us in the consular section. She and I went to brunch on Saturday and spent the day shopping in Recoleta and Palermo. It was great to see her and catch up – we talked non-stop for the entire day!

Friday night was the Marine Ball – there was a nice sit-down dinner at a hotel downtown with the traditional Marine ceremony (that always makes me cry). We had a good time, but scooted out when the music started at midnight!

And…drum roll! Last night we went to Madre Rojas with Lea and Jose to celebrate John’s 60th birthday – happy birthday, John!

I’ll leave you with two more Halloween photos!
