Hawthorne Hotel's Flags of the Week ~~ December 19 trough 25, 2011
As this year draws to a close, we continue to hang different flags on the front of the Hawthorne Hotel every day. We hope that by looking and seeing another country's flag,and another state's flag we might pause for just a moment to reflect about the broadness of our world, the diversity held therein, and yet our sameness, our humanity.
Monday, December 19 ~~ Austria and Pennsylvania
Tuesday, December 20 ~~ Azerbaijan and Puerto Rico
Wednesday, December 21~~ Bahamas and Rhode Island
Thursday, December 22 ~~ Bahrain and South Carolina
Friday, December 23 ~~ United Kingdom* and South Dakota
Saturday, December 24 ~~ Bangladesh and Tennessee
Sunday, December 25 ~~ Barbados and Texas
* denotes special request(s)
I hope you enjoy thinking just a little bit about somewhere other than where you are right now, and if this flag post, and our habit of recognizing other places helps you to do that, then we will count this another successful week, and another good year.
