In any global beauty contest, the candidates are always divided into different groups in order to maximize the fulfillment of different activities such as sponsor visits, tours to different sights and the like. In the ongoing Miss International 2014, there are four – A, B, C and D. And you can always see in the photos why some girls are inseparable or a particular bunch would always be tailing each other around.

But regardless of the groupings, though, they all remain one big sisterhood. There are no rules preventing someone from Group A to get close with a member of, say, Group D and vice-versa. In the same light, there is no stopping a non-Spanish speaking delegate to keep sticking with the Latinas or a Caucasian always hanging out with the Asians.
This is like United Nations. A gathering of different nationalities which, in essence, is unity at its finest. Stripped down to basics, though, it is also like an international summer camp where the ladies treat each other both as sisters and opponents.

Hi! Norman here. When I'm not working, I spend most of my free time planning on daily blogs. If you will notice, I always make sure that a fresh topic comes out everyday - not an easy thing to do but it's all good. Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the visit!
