Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone who celebrates the season! Sending warm thoughts and good wishes to our readers, blog friends, and Foreign Service personnel and their families serving here and around the world. May your holidays be quiet and peaceful; and may the universe keep you safe wherever you are!
To those who wrote to check on us, thank you for your thoughts. The blog is good for a couple more months. We’ll save the update after the holidays.
The photos below are desktop wallpapers. The whale photos are from the US Embassy in New Zealand. They are of humpback whales taken just offshore from Rarotonga. If you want to check out the rest, click here. There are also selected photos below from US Embassy Nepal, US Embassy Chile, and photos from Alaska and Arizona via the IIP Photo Archive. To download the photos as wallpaper for your computer, right click on the photo, then “save image as”…. on your computer.
Wishing you all the gifts of the season — Peace, Joy, Hope!
