Christmas Eve Dinner

December 24, 2005
Day 87

Today, several people from my hostel planned a Christmas Eve Dinner. I walked to the grocery store with Sam and Kim from Alaska, Carolina from France, and Magnus from Sweden to buy supplies. Town was surprisingly busy. There weren't many Christmas decorations anywhere, which combined with the warm weather, really didn't make it feel like Christmas.

Tonight, we ate our dinner: roasted chicken, sausage, olives, salad, deviled eggs, shrimp, sangria, and an ice cream cake for dessert. It was a big feast, and it was nice to hang out with some people from my hostel. Otherwise, not much was going on today. I figured Christmas Eve and Day would be lost causes to attempt to do anything productive anyway.

    Got your postcard, Very Nice, Thank You. (Gracias I guess). I am really impressed with Chille, I really want to visit Chille, may be spend some time (month or so there). :-). I still think you will like to live in South Florida, it has very heavy influence of south america.

    Hi Rohit, good questions. I'll get to them soon I promise. Times have been very busy the last few days, so I don't see too many blog updates before New Year's. I think I'll have to take a few days off somewhere near here and just relax and write. Traveling is a lot of work, believe it or not.
