Tbt: Old Peru

Thursday December 13th. Just a short while longer to Christmas day, a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. In Peru, Catholicism is widely practiced, and the the 24th is the big night of dining and midnight fireworks.

Luckily, we all prefer to eat earlier, say around 9:30 pm. Eating a big meal at 12:30 am just doesn’t work for me, but we will stay up and have a toast while we marvel at the vistas above on the 4th floor. There will be displays in every part of the city, and floating candlarias in the air. It’s really quite a spectacle.
