After everyone had eaten it was time for chicha morada. Chicha is a sweet drink made from dried purple corn. The corn is boiled and then sugar, lemons, cinnamon, and sometimes apples are added. It is an amazing drink. Hilda makes it in a large trash can. Lucky for us we still have some left over in our fridge today. The kids all had at least 3 glasses and the grown ups lost count of how much we drank.
After lunch it was time for games.
One of the most fun games is kids blindfolded trying to feed each other this sticky jello/pudding type food. It gets EVERYWHERE but not much actually in their mouths.
After an hour or so of games the middle school girls danced for us. They were adorable.
Yohan getting in on the action.
When the girls were done dancing all the kids starting chanting for GeGe to dance. How could she refuse?
Happy Independence Day Peru! I feel lucky to be here. Hope this finds you all well! C
