Thanksgiving 2011 in Quito

Posted by on December 2, 2011

We had an awesome time yesterday celebrating Thanksgiving 2011 with our friends in Quito.  Yes, we celebrated Thanksgiving a week late because we were traveling last week to Santa Rosa but that didn’t make it any less important and most of the people that were invited, Ecuadorians, didn’t know any difference anyways because they don’t have that holiday here in Ecuador.  This was our second year in a row of celebrating Thanksgiving here by inviting the IPEE office support staff to our apartment to share with them in a little bit of our culture from the U.S.  In the end, there was a lot of good food, so no one could possibly complain.

Kim worked tirelessly for two days preparing for the big meal, but it was well worth it as everything was delicious!

Simeon tried to help but he just ended up getting covered in flour.

A Thanksgiving meal is not complete without pumpkin pie.

We shared a little explanation of what Thanksgiving is and had everyone go around the room and say what they are thankful for this year.

Everyone ready to dig in!
