gringas y mas

Some of the ex-Fincas came over while Rafa was at our house in order to help make and eat a dinner together.  Yohana,  Eliuth and I made chismol and cabbage to go along with the gringas.

Rafa and Danilo made the flour tortillas for the gringas.

Cooking the burger, chicken and quesillo mixture for the gringas and checking the pan de pan for dessert.

The usual, a variety of activities when everyone's together: ipod and facebook...

Danilo trying on Michael's glasses...? :)

 looking at videos with Yohana...         

 uncle and niece, Concho and Eliuth relaxing.
