Are you married Miss?

I like that my poor Spanish is considered “charming” to 23 year old sailors, but merely warranted me a C in college.

I didn’t take my camera, so no good photos. The ‘tall ship’ Libertad is docked in Baltimore and I had to rep my boss for the event. The Argentine ambassador, Jose Bordon, thew a little soiree on board tonight.
To highlight the food: little baby quiche, figs wrapped in prosciutto, beef empanadas, some sort of traditional stir fry pork in a cream sauce, mini turkey sandwiches on fresh baked bread, herbed cheeses topped with mushrooms, meats and other veggies.

I will say my 3 inch stacked heels and two glasses of red Argentine wine were not the best for getting on and off the ship, but luckily, there were plenty of sailors to help.

So much freaking fun. Makes up for the 50 hour work weeks.

Next post we will return to sewing.

  1. I’ve had Argentinian wine…there is something about the red wine..it has less acid or something? It’s very smooth. Guess you had a good time!

  3. Figs in prosciutto — yum! What was the rest of your outfit? I’ve been shopping lately before I decide on which patterns to cut out, and I’m just not that impressed with summer fashions right now.

  5. This is why my pants on PR made you think of sailing! :-)
    BTW, I think your dress will be wonderful, doing the muslin is well worth it.
