Pumpkin Pie in a Cup!

My wonderful friend Julie gave me the best Thanksgiving/Birthday/early Christmas present ever. You can actually find American pumpkin here in Peru and make a pumpkin pie from scratch but they are not common at all. What a great taste of home!

Thank you Julie!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Seen in Starbucks in San Isidro

So it must seem like I go to Starbucks a lot but I would have to say it is about once or twice a month that I treat myself. I personally like Bisetti and Dedalo much more but the reason I am posting is that I saw this fantastic offering at the Starbucks on Las Flores in San Isidro a few weeks ago. There are lots of students who work in groups at that Starbucks so they put in a printer and every customer is allowed up to ten prints. Not bad!

I also say this in the newspaper when I sat down to drink my tea. Both Steve Carrell and Jennifer Garner are Denison University alums. Yeah Denison pride! It made me smile. I have yet to see the movie but I have heard good things. I loved Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day when I was younger. I think the translation is pretty fun to say. Alexander y un Día Terrible, Horrible, Malo, muy Malo.

Art Fairs and Bazaars to go to this Season in Lima

Happy November everyone! Spring is here and the weather is getting warmer. Christmas is around the corner and there are tons of art fairs and school bazaars occurring this month. Here are a few that I have come across. You can find all sorts of cool items that are great for Christmas gifts.

Marco and I had a great time on Sunday checking out the De Nuestras Manos fair. I went back today and bought a bunch of Christmas gifts for family members. If you are in Lima I would definitely check it out! The stands will be set up through the 16th and they run from 10am to 10pm daily. Here is the organization's Facebook page.

Here are a few school Bazaars that are happening soon!
