HAPPY NEW YEAR...the Colombian Way!!

2007 is here! We ushered it in as usual, a party at my brother-in-law's house. Danny and Maria Elena are always wonderful hosts for the party. There are many customs that are followed such as the grapes you eat at midnight as well as the dummy that is burnt. The dummy is stuffed with fire works and burning it is to symbolize burning all the bad things from the past year so that there is a fresh start. We had a wonderful time. Elias' racquetball buddy, Carlos, went with us.
