Peruvian Family Afternoon

Our friend's family invited us to spend a traditional family afternoon. We were delighted to attend!! The food was amazing and plentiful! There were relatives from all over the world; Italy, Canada, USA. Between English, Italian, Spanish and some Portuguese everyone was able communicate.



Trying some local delights!

Everyone catching up....


Its amazing to see how children interact, language is no barrier...


In Peru , most families have a "Nana" who helps with the household chores, raising children and companion. This Nana has been with bestie's family for more than 25 years. She will remain with the family for the rest of her life.


Peruvians really enjoy life and love to celebrate! Musicians are often hired to play music during special celebrations. The music fills the house and before you know it everyone is singing along or dancing.


Just like North American's, Peruvians love their furbabies. This is bestie's mother's little furbaby Chiquita. Dolce would have had a great time playing with her.


The gardens are starting to go into bloom.. The roses were brilliant!!


Imagine having an olive tree in your backyard!!!


The day ended with another beautiful Peruvian sunset!!
