Beyond that, today I got a pedicure and immediately went to the beach afterward to fulfill the one thing I do when I travel to anywhere with a beach:
|I kept up tradition by writing Kerin's name in the sand at the beachfront in Praia.|
|"Ready to see some sights?!" Carly excitedly proclaimed.|
|But right before it ruined my island vacation forever, I snapped this shot of a patchwork of fields.|
|Though she did embrace Italian culture by wearing a hot pink windbreaker on an 80 degree day.|
Anyway, just an observation on my part Blog. It was a nice thing to realize I guess.
After some failed sight seeing and a failed attempt to attend Thirsty Thursday on base (also a place that I find strange but have gotten used to; as in "Oh, you want to go into this grocery store--err--commissary? Passport please. Also, you can't buy anything.", Carly and Casey and I played a nerdy zombie board game THAT WAS AWESOME!!! Of course I don't remember what it was called and I'm too tired to go into the living room to see what it's called, but it involved little action figures and dice and hero cards and a CD soundtrack. Play it, Blog. It's super fun.
With that, the Skype call with my brother (and adorable niece) drained most of my battery, so I'm signing off Blog. Only three more days left before I leave. Where has the time gone? Actually, I feel like I've been here for a long time. Probably because I'm on a tiny island that is full of grocery stores that card you and highways with pedestrians on them. Yay for overseas military!
