The embassy community in Dhaka had events all weekend long for Halloween. On Thursday afternoon, the chancellery opened up to trick or treaters and had a door decorating contest. This year's costume was a mermaid, but got covered up by a pink sweater which HAD to be worn. Ceiba had fun, but isn't about anything scary just yet. She was all manners, only taking one piece of candy at each door. Several ladies shoved a handful in her bag. She went for the "red" piece at every stop, so to look in her bag, there isn't a lot of variety. All things must be red at the present for her- toys, crayons, barrettes, freezy pops.
We baked some Halloween cookies! Of course we had to send sprinkles in our airfreight. We LOVE sprinkles!! And yes, we had to eat them all within 2 days, because otherwise they would mold or have the icing running all over the place here in Dhaka.
Hope everyone had a great Halloween and Day of the Dead!
