Happy New Year! | Uruguay

sparkling cheers
midnight fireworks

For New Year Leslie took us to a dinner party at one of her friend’s house. They cooked a lechon over the parrilla (a whole pig on a BBQ) and we ate and drank outside. We had some good food (tongue salad) and some weird food (pound cake rolls filled with savory things like ham, cheese, chicken and avocado) but ultimately the star of the evening was the lechon. It was by far, hands down, the best one I’ve ever had. Yes, better than the one in Bali and better than the one in the Philippines. This proclamation might make some people angry, but I stand by it.

At midnight we poured sparkling wine and went to the 2nd floor’s terrace for a better view of the fireworks over the city. We all kissed and wished each other feliz año nuevo. It was a great night.

    Oh my gosh. That top photo loaded very slowly from the top down and before I realized it was a barbeque I thought you might have been spending NYE in a jail cell with something very creepy on the cot. Glad that wasn’t the case. (You have to look at it with the actual grill cut off to know what I mean!)

    Happy New Year!!!
