Photo of the Week – Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus Christmas Cupcake

I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I have the fortunate pleasure to be flying back home to California for Christmas (doing double duty to also take the opportunity to renew my visa!) and will leave on Saturday.  Looks like I might bump into Santa (or Papá Noel) along the way.  Although I won’t be arriving through the chimney, I will be arriving to what will probably be insane traffic and little walking space at LAX airport.  I think I would prefer the chimney.

One splendid week with my family, friends and will finally get my haircut from my “place”…I have been waiting 3 months for it because every place I go to here just doesn’t get it the way I want it.  And I will be honest, I have been missing some good Mexican food.  The only thing is that I am kind of sick, which I have been working on overcoming since Sunday.  I have been drinking liters of water everyday with the hope of flushing this bad boy out before I get on the plane – there is nothing worse than flying while you are sick.

Anyway, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who follows this (be you silent readers, or those moved enough to comment/like) blog.  While I have only just started this maybe 2 months ago, and don’t always get a chance to update it as often as I would like, it still has been great knowing that some of the things I write about are interesting to more than just myself!  Thank you all so much and I hope none of you get a lump of coal this year; although depending on where some of you live and how cold it gets, you might actually be able to use that this year.  Maybe that lump isn’t looking so bad….  Here is to a fresh start and a renewed sense of motivation for the New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving from Peru!

A guinea pig who is thankful for not being a turkey!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  Unfortunately I will be missing out on the feast this year, but has not stopped me from eyeballing all the photos on Facebook from friends back home who are preparing for the army of family about to converge on a cornucopia of food.  I found this image and thought it was fitting to give a big salutation from Peru.  It is a guinea pig in a pilgrim hat, and it is significant from Peru because guinea pigs are a delicacy here…so I like to think of it as s/he is thankful for having today off while every gobbles down the turkey.  It is kind of like those Chic-fil-A ads where the cow is walking around saying “eat more chikn”!
