Hillary Clinton Visits New Zealand

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited New Zealand, and talk about some BIG news!  I may not always agree with Hillary’s politics, but having her visit Kiwi-land was like a little bit of home 🙂

I absolutely loved reading about the distinctly New Zealand style of greeting – in addition to rigorous security checks and media waiting since 4am to greet her plane, the mayor of Wellington {New Zealand’s capital city} rode her bike to the airport to greet her, and then later on during the visit they all had barbecue with the Prime Minister.  I think that’s fabulous!

    I can’t imagine how hard it is for you to be so far away from home. Hopefully little bits of home will continue to visit you and make you less homesick. 🙂 XOXO
