Nica Bday party!

I think those kids wanted to play with the gringos.

It was his 3rd bday. His name is Elyin. He was so cute.

Even little girls in princess dresses were taking swings at the pinata
This cutie, she was a neighbor, she wasn't supposed to be at the party, since the families dont have a lot of money, they cant invite all the neighbors but this little cutie just wouldn't leave despite her brothers and sisters threatening to beat her little booty.

Saturday we went to the spot where we usually go to pick up a group of kids to play soccer in the park, but they weren't there. Their mom said they were at a birthday party at her house and she said we could go. She had her two daughters walk us there. It was an incredible experience to be invited into a neighborhood which otherwise wouldn't have been safe for us to venture into and to be invited into the home of a native person and see how they live, so different than us and it makes you realize whats really important in life is friends, family and food!
