¡Feliz Cumpleaños!


What better way to immerse oneself in a new culture than to attend a birthday party? :)

It was this little niña’s birthday today:

Meet Raffaella
What a cutie!

The party was in the yard behind my house, because it was my host family’s niece. Admittedly, it was a bit awkward for me at first when your conversations with people only go so far, due to my limited vocabulary… But Ecuadorian parties are a bit different than American ones in that, in addition to the cake and piñata, there’s a time called hora loca, or crazy hour!

It didn’t take long for me to get dancing, playing musical chairs, and sack jump racing!  I also don’t intend to brag…but you happen to be reading the blog of the winning three-legged race team… (Haha). What fun!
Feliz Cumpleaños, Raffaella.  :)
