Peruvian Birthday Party... cont'd

Saturday, May 20, 2006 -

I'm a day late as far as when I thought I'd get to these pictures, and to make things worse, after I checked out the pictures on my camera, I realized I didn't really get any good ones!

So, I'll tell you that there were 4 tables just as heavily laden as this one:

There was everything from taffy, bubba-licious, chocolate bars, cookies, popcorn, masa-mora (majorly sweet jello/jelly combo), jell-o, lollypops, animal cookies covered in chocolate, nuts, raisins and even meat sticks! Everything was on platters and circulated throughout the afternoon. At 7pm they served a full dinner to all the guests (there were quite a lot there).

The party was supposed to start at 3pm. HAH! No one else arrived until 4:30 and then it went until past 8pm (we left at 8). What did everyone do? We sat around and ate! That's all that was on the schedule; that and to listen to very loud music. The kids all disappeared upstairs as the birthday boy had just received a playstation. I could NOT believe how rarely we saw them! Well, this is how they do it. I must say it seems more catered to impressing the adult friends/family more than the kids.

It is the tradition of the birthday person to host such things as this. The birthday person always provides a meal for all their guests and well-wishers. Seems a little backwards from what I'm used to. I like the American way of treating the birthday person to have their special day work and worry free!

Amy, cool birthday! Glad it was a success. Birthdays are like that here too. The person having the party hosts the whole thing -- ususally a meal at a restaurant. And what I envision as a child's party always ends up with tons of adults. The idea of a children's party just doesn't work here. I'm going to try again this year. We'll see. Amy, please remember me. We're in the midst of moving. So stressful. Appreciate it, sister.
