Friday Night Elegance

International Women's Black and White Party

sunny 85 °F


The International Women's Club put on a fundraiser for an orphanage Friday night. Rachel, Kelly, Melissa and I decided to go and enjoy the fancy formal evening held at a hotel.

Rachel and I decided to really get fancy and we headed to the salon to have our hair and makeup done. It takes time to straighten my curly hair, and that's why I don't do it often. plus with this humidity it sure doesn't last long. Rachel told the make up artist to tone down my makeup because of my religion, and that I'm conservative. LOL I think I have a reputation. Anyway...somehow she told her I was a Mormon. Small world, the make up artist was Mormon too. She had just come back from her mission a couple of months ago to Ecuador, and told us a story about one of her experiences.

We headed home, changed, caught a taxi and headed to the hotel. It was a beautiful venue. Everyone was dressed in black and white. The tables were decorated. There was small orchestra playing, which switched to a band. At one point there were drummers, dancers, and stilt dancers that came with balloons. There was dancing, raffles, yummy dinner, and visiting. Nice night. Bolivia really knows how to throw parties!

P.S. It takes forever to take makeup off!
