Part of my vacation included a little getaway to Martha's Vineyard with some college friends. It was basically sunny beaches, frothy drinks and a lot of catching up. If you haven't been to Martha's Vineyard it is most certainly a place to put on your list for next summer. SUURREEE it is filled with gigantic mansions and ice cream cones that cost $6.00 BUT it is so so beautiful. Lucky for me, one of my best friends has a summer home there so we were treated to a seriously excellent weekend.
While we were there, we used the power of technology for good and were able to Skype with our friend Troung who is currently serving his time in the Peace Corps in a remote village in Indonesia. We quickly put down our margaritas as he described his devotion to Ramadan and the Muslim culture--no eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset. Needless to say, we ate and drank for Troung over the weekend. It was so great to see him and finally hear about his awesome adventure while simultaneously realizing how boring all our lives are in comparison. ha!
Hopefully this is a tradition that lasts for a long time--it was a perfect weekend with great friends.
