Last Saturday was the big annual fiesta here in the small town of Pucara, Ecuador, where we are doing a homestay and taking some Spanish lessons for about two weeks. We are so glad that we arrived in time for the fiesta! It was quite the party. There was a volleyball and soccer tournament, a game where a pole was greased and kids tried to climb it and get the prizes at the top, a contest where men on horseback rode under a wire and used a pen to try and stab ribbons hanging from the wire, and a pinata smash for the kiddos. After all the games, there were hours of dancing and drinking until people started to wander home around 2am. Here are some pictures from the fiesta.
