社評 1010 休斯敦市長年度外交領事團盛會
特納市長在致歡迎詞中首先表達近九十八個之外交領事代表為我們搭起走往世界之桥樑， 让休市成為當今全球航天 、能源及醫學的領導者。
晚宴桌上有艷麗鮮花和法式羊排大餐， 台上更有現㘯大樂隊及歌星現唱， 大家紛紛起舞， 可說是賓主盡歡。
在插滿各國國旗之長廊上， 市長也分別和各國總領事合攝留念， 也由於市長之任期將在明年屆滿，大家也和他殷殷話別。

Houston City of Diplomacy
This is the second time I have represented the West African country of Guinea after participating in the Houston Mayor’s Consular Ball. More than 90 consulates now have offices in Houston. I spent a very friendly and pleasant night thanks to the city’s detailed arrangements, which shows that we are a very important international city in the world.
In his welcome speech, Mayor Turner expressed his appreciation to all the consuls and representatives who have built a bridge between Houston and the world.
We entered the party room in alphabetical order where there were splendid fireworks and a large-scale LED that lit up when the consuls entered the venue.
There were gorgeous flowers set up on the tables and a French lamb chop dinner. A band was also playing music and singers were singing songs to entertain all the guests.
Mayor Turner took photos with all of the guests and personally thanked all of the people who have supported him in the last seven years.
I personally had the opportunity to meet consuls general from Qatar, Korea and Guyana.
It was such a wonderful diplomatic event, and all of us had a very good time.
