An American Thanksgiving (II)


My mom wrote on her Facebook page that she thought it was "sad" that we were eating Peruvian food for Thanksgiving. In her words, "something seems wrong about that." So to ease her sorrow, I'm happy to report that I had a delicious and traditional American Thanksgiving dinner! On Sunday, Kenny and Jeena invited us over for a delicious meal of roasted duck, turkey, chicken, sweet potatoes, stuffing, scalloped potatoes, corn, bread rolls (which wasn't eaten in fear that we'd be filling our stomachs with nonsense like bread), pumpkin pie, apple cobbler and so much more...just trying to recount all the food is giving me food coma :)

Mark and I headed over to their house around 2 p.m. and didn't leave until 8:30ish. There were about 15-20 people throughout the evening, and it was really awesome talking to everyone about how long they've been here, why they came here and when they plan on returning home. We talked about careers, culture shock, food, traveling...pretty much everything you can talk about in 6 hours of eating, breathing through the pain of food comatose and eating again. And because Mark and I were the youngest people there as well as the ones in Korea for the least amount of time, everyone had their fair share of advice for us. It was enlightening to hear everyone's opinions & experiences.







Another highlight of the day was the most adorable baby I've ever laid eyes on. Not only was she cute, she was quirky, flirty and oh-so-happy! I'll let the pictures explain...





Hope you all had a great weekend! Until next time, bisous xoxo
