Heavy snow and a chill wind did not stop the Peruvian traditions last night as we made our family walk with Arya the Airedale around the block (manzana). As per convention, something yellow was worn (beneath the parkas) and backpacks were filled with items to equip everyone for the coming year.
And noise was made! Drum, shaker and whistle were sounded for anyone who cared to listen before heading back into the warmth of an open birch log fire and twelve sugared grapes eaten beneath the table. Crazy but fun.
Happy New Year everyone!
