turkeys in Ecuador?

Quito, Ecuador

Turkeys aren't so popular, though I know they exist and some people will be eating them.

This year for Thanksgiving--a small Thanksgiving meal with my housemates (Megan, Ellie, and Liza) when I finally get out of here tonight. Then an ELF! date with Liz back home...a wonderful Thanksgiving tradition.

Also, tomorrow night we'll have a more proper, huge holiday meal (more like a potluck, but with some typical turkey-day food). But it's the company that matters, right? It's bound to be a night full of food, friends, new friends, laughter and chaos.

We ended up having an obscene amount of food, and 2 types of mashed potatoes which of course spurred a spuds contest (between Lisa and our native Irish Felim)--both delicious, but believe it or not, California's very own Lisa beat out the Irish. Woot. With people from all over our social lives, and a few different countries, it was an interesting and wonderful night. The Ecuadorians there enjoyed their first Thanksgivings.

It was a very nice gathering full of food, laughter, stories, songs and sing-alongs (thanks to my very musical friends who amongst them have 2 guitars and a ukelele).

Thanksgiving in Ecuador also brought a hailing thunderstorm on my walk to work, followed by torrential downpours 10 minutes later, and then 10 minutes after that a beautifully clear sky. Crazy.

Hope you all enjoyed your holiday!
