Navidad in Peru
So Christmas has gone and been and what an experience!! Firstly it doesn´t feel like Christmas because its boiling hot here. I am use to the air being able to freeze your face off and sometimes snow on the ground, so being in a place where there is music about snow and outside there is burning hot sunshine - its slightly strange!! But what was nice was being with the family. In Peru they celebrate Christmas on the 24th at Midnight where they have the Christmas dinner and open presents with fireworks going off at Midnight. Its a time for family and for remembering the birth of Christ. It was a very special day and I enjoyed it a lot, it was also followed by a British Christmas with turkey and crackers!!! woohoo
