|At Lara Beach, reading "Inside a U.S. Embassy."|
This post will be less words, more photos. On Saturday, October 3rd, Elizabeth, Alex, and I ventured out to the famous Lara Beach shoreline, about an hour away by bus. Elizabeth swam in the cool waters, Alex sunbathed and slept, and I read my book called “Inside a U.S. Embassy: Diplomacy at Work.” The book provides an insight into a career in the U.S. Foreign Service by profiling officers in various posts around the world. The more I read about the fulfilling work that these servants do, the more I am excited to embark on the journey myself.
With a brochure in hand, we asked strangers on the street for how to get to “Sandland,” the annual sand sculpture international festival. I was so, so, so excited to see these sand sculptures! When we finally got there—Sand ho!—my heart leaped with joy and my mouth dropped in awe. We admired the beauty and the hard work of artists from 9 different countries who built sculptures to this year’s theme of “7 Wonders of the World & Mythology”. With that, I leave you with ‘sandastic’ memories as captured by these photos:
