At the Indonesian night...
... my friend at I wanted to dress up indonesian-
but we did not have any constumes so we went for the traditional
clothing of Laos instead. My best friend here in the US is from Laos
and she brought several outfits from her country.
We had a really good time and my Lao-sister and I got lots of compliments ;-)
There were lots of great performances (dances, singing, traditional way of fighting...) and the food was delicious! Since last night I think that I should travel to Indonesia :)
Have any of you ever been there?
The necklace that I am wearing is made out of real pearls from Thailand! I' ve been borrowing it from my friend because she told me that we wearing a Laos- dress you need to wear necklaces.
Later that night she said that the necklace looks so nice on me that I should keep it. I tried to convince her that that's a crazy idea but she insisted and this is then the story of how I got my first real pearls!
They are lovely and each one looks different from the other. I've been really really happy and grateful for this gift!
