Here's some of the pictures the boys and I took to make an electronic Christmas card for Roger and Dina:
At 6:00pm Roger came home from work, and he and Yefer went to Caraz to buy some pollo a la brasa (roasted chicken) and papa fritas (french fries). While they were gone, Dina, our neighbor Liz, Liz's daughter Jeny, and I cut up a salad and made cholotada (hot chocolate).

When Roger returned, we set the Christmas table and sat down for a nice chicken dinner. It was a great dinner, with a fun family feel. For desert we ate panaton (kinda like a Peruvian fruit cake) and drank chocolate. This is very typical, and what I was prepared for (no surprises).

Later we spent the night sharing a few beers (first time I've drank in my site), and dancing until Midnight (huayno music...not my favorite). Once Midnight hit, we danced a couple more songs and then I went to bed, and the neighbors went home. Again to was very basics without frills, but very nice.
