This Saturday was fantastic! Marco and I went to the Material de Guerra gala. I went to the salon for the first time and got my hair and nails done. I stressed a little bit about making sure I was well put together but after seeing how everyone came dressed to the event, I know that next time I can relax a bit more. However, it's kind of fun to get all fancy every once in a while. It's a perk to being a girl! A friend of mine, whom I met while singing in the choir for my other friend's thesis, came over to do my make-up. She also acted as photographer for us. Marco was a bit worried that we were going to be late but as someone who has lived in Peru long enough to know how time works here, I wasn't too stressed. As it turns out, we were the first couple to arrive at 8pm sharp. When did the evening actually start? 10pm!!! The general made a speech to start the night and he commented on how it is disrespectful to come into a gala so late even if the wives and significant others say that the salon took a while. I think it is kind of funny how Marco is always on time to things and makes sure to be punctual even though he knows how people are here even with army events. You have got to admire integrity!
