So on FB yesterday, there was an article about beautiful beaches around the world with atypical features like color, formation, etc. They were from places like Hawaii, New Zealand, Indonesia, Iceland, Greece, Australia, Maldives.
I reposted it and Mona commented, playfully asking which of those beaches we were going to (once I get a job and can save for a while. And once her divorce gets settled and she can take time off from the kids. So not for a while, Mona. One day.)
I instantly chose Maldives, since I’ve been pining about it ever since an ex – coworker went there on his honeymoon and I Googled the country since that was the first time I’d ever heard of it. The Maldives’ special beach has bioluminescent phytoplankton .
THEN… only a few minutes later… on Meet the Press, I saw a report about Amal Clooney (yes, George’s wife) fighting to release Maldives’ ex President from jail, addressing corruption and the fact that Maldives has has high % recruitment for ISIS.
Ok, so maybe we’ll wait to visit the Maldives. Looks like it’ll just be Hawaii. Either way… COIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINCIDEEEEEEEENCE!!!!!!!!!
