On the seventh day of Christmas, South America gave to me…

We wanted to do a series on the blog to capture what the Christmas season is like in South America. The title suggests we will write 12 such posts. It maybe more, it maybe less. That really depends on the Christmas cheer you provide, Ayacucho.

…a Christmas tree!

When we decorated our Christmas trees at KATC last week, there was an unfortunate incident and the top broke off of one of them. GeGe gave it to me so I could bring some Christmas cheer to our apartment. I got the idea to make some Peru-themed ornaments and finished the project yesterday. The “tree” is only 10 or so inches tall, so I couldn’t fit much on there.

These are the ornaments that now live on our "Christmas shrub", as Ryan calls it.

From top to bottom, by row, we have: 1. Marinera Nortena dancers 2. what Ryan calls “the Simpsons llama” 3. Alejandro’s bus 4. a mototaxi 5. the Peru logo 6. 5 nuevos soles 7. a Sublime bar 8. the Pampa de Ayacucho monument 9. a Cusquena bottle and 10. our tree topper, the Peruvian flag.

These represent a few of our favorite things in Peru.

Here is our tree, in all its glory.
