The Marine Ball
A few weekends ago, some girl friends and I got all dolled up to attend the Marine Ball at the Swiss Hotel to celebrate the 233rd birthday of the United States Marines. It was most fun to have an excuse to get really dressed up and enjoy a fancy evening. It was truly an ex-pat, diplomatic community, including friends from the play. Luckily, the marines were in formal attire, easy to spot and easy to avoid. I have to admit I was a little nervous the whole night that the Thought Police might find me out and zap me on the spot. Yeah, Obama!
