This is the first in a series of posts this week to catch up on a few things we missed. When we didn’t have a camera, we got pretty lax about blogging, but there were a few interesting things happening. This week, before posting about Annette’s visit, we’ll highlight some of those events.
First up: Our end of the summer lunch on Friday, March 1st
As we’ve said before, and as you probably knew anyway, the seasons down here in the Southern Hemisphere are the opposite of those in say, Seattle. Thus, summer has just come to a close. But, ironically, the weather is actually better now because summer is also the rainy season. Anyway. To celebrate the end of the summer, we had a lunch at school, along with our normal Friday activities. Our menu consisted of pollo a la brasa (spit-roasted chicken), potatoes with qapchi (a cilantro-based cream sauce), and chicha morada (sweet, purple corn punch).
