Birthday Parties

I got to celebrate my birthday twice this year! Once on Saturday with the kids at Lucy´s project, and again on Sunday with Sonia and our friends. Sonia and her friend Malena cooked pollo al sillao(chicken with soy sauce, ginger and garlic), rice with raisins and nuts, and potatoes. And the birthday cake had fillings of manjar blanco (caramel paste) and guanabana (a fruit). In Peru they always sing Happy Birthday in English, with a very bad accent (¨hoppy beerthday ...¨), then they sing Feliz Cumpleaños.
