Eleven months in Bolivia: “Color me Wonderful!”

02 Jul

In Bolivia there’s always an excuse to bring out colors – by nature, in an incomparable way, or through handmade artwork. Our family of 5 has been at post for exactly 11 months now – enjoying life, watching our kids grow surrounded by new friends, improving their Spanish communication skills, and delighting ourselves with the inherent beauty this country has to offer.  Here’s a small sample of past 11 months in-country:

Despite not having access to the ocean, Bolivia hides some wonderful secrets, like the scenery around the Lake Titicaca

The unique, multi-color display of beauty… not found in many places like here. Where tradition, religion, faith and pride meet!

The perfect combination between blues, greens and earth tones!

The respect and appreciation to others, shown by people from all over the world:

Our 11th month in Bolivia is ending, sealed with happiness, joy and our warmest greetings to our friends and extended family – wherever they are, please enjoy a bit of our “colorful home“…♥ Now, off to our second year at a great FS Post Assignment – thank you all! 😮

      Thank you very much, Ruthincolorado! Always trying to make the best out of time at ‘post’… moving and living in different countries, learning different cultures, is only difficult if one does not try to see the beauty behind it! Thanks for taking the time to stop by and share your thoughts! Much appreciated. 😮
