I've finally decided on my gift for Mexico City's International Convention October 31-November 3. What do you guys think?
It's a postcard where the front highlights the beauty of Nicaragua and *ahem* yours truly :) and the back gives a Nica recipe and my contact info.
Now here's my dilemma...as you all can see from my picture, I am pretty white with strawberry blonde hair and very obviously NOT Nicaraguan. However, my congregation REALLY wants me to dress up in a traditional Nica outfit the Sunday of the convention. What's the consensus on this? Will I look ridiculous and will all the attendees just think "crazy gringa!"? Or will I be a proud representative of my adoptive country? If it helps you make a decision, this is what traditional Nicaraguan dress looks like...just add sandals:
