I will tell about the 15th b-day party, As you may have notice i´m losing my lust for updating this thing, and my writting skills are declining, none the less i´m putting in as much effort as i can while its 40 degrees outside and i´m killing sometime.
So A 15th B-day party for a young girl in latin america really is A wedding without a groom.
What does a 15 year old boy get in latin america you ask? A Hand shake, Lifes hard get used to it. :P
Everyone arrives before her, and then she enters much like a bride, all in white, and everyone goes nuts, then Every man in her life steps in and has a dance with her, and then some of her friends etc..
Then its sorta just a massive party lots of music, none stop dancing, From what i gathered for The family there was really good steak and expensive jonnie walker red label scotch.
For the Friends theres like fries chips ice cream snack food...
They had hired a profesional DJ Singers, A camera crew and a profesional photographer, I´m not expect but i figure its a fairly expensive lil event.
The party Went on until about 8 am,
The amazing part about all this is The waiters served beer to the obviously underaged kids no problem, The parents didnt seem to care that there kids were drinking (in monderation) And the fact that everyones parents were ok with 15 year old kids partying until 8 am in the morning. Guess its something i´ll never understand growing up in the prudy north american culture.
Having latin family.
So the only problem with this at the moment is this town anyone my age has left for greener pastures which leaves a big age gap theres virtually no single people between
20-30 years old.
So thats my fast lil update about the B-day party.
If you noticed the date tonight is new years eve, Unfortuantly, or maybe fortunatly?? it´s not looking like much is going on, The cousins i thought were gonna be here have left for the resort coastal town of punta del este along with anyone who has the money to take off and celebrate on the beach.
I´ve more or less made the judgment call to enjoy Christmas and and the 15th B-day party with my family And have a relaxed new years, i figure i´ve had my far share of crazy nights
Beyond that I´m in the proccess of figuring out how to go from paysandu to colon (argentina) and then to santa fe as i´ve already been to colon if possible i´d like to head directly to a new town.
From there heres my argentina Agenda for the moment Things CAn and usually do Change
Santa Fe- Because its the only town from colon that has a conection heading to posadas
Posadas - On the way to iguazu
Foz de Iguazu- I think this explains itself
Posadas- To transferbusses i think
Salta- Suposed to be a really cool town in northern argentina
Tucuman- To break up the massivly long bus rides this massive country has instore for me
Cordoba- Suposed to be a really nice city
Mendoza- Once again suposed to be a nice city also my last stop before chile
Thats my planed stops for argentina for the moment, guess we´ll see how it all goes.
