Family Christmas Dinner   Leave a comment

As is tradition in Peru, we ate turkey dinner at midnight to welcome in Christmas day (like we do for New Years in the States). Then we exchanged presents–we had drawn a name; I was Shirley´s secret friend and Daniel was mine (love my plant!).

Note: In the second picture, you will see a boy in a blue and white striped shirt. He is Alberto, 13 years old, from a village 3 days away. His parents are very poor, so they sent him alone to Iquitos to find work. He found a place to stay…next door to us. He cannot afford to go to school. He has become part of our family in a short time.
