About La Mother Tongue

La Mother Tongue is my medium to share the joys and challenges of being a new parent as well as to share how we make a conscious effort in our daily life to bring baby up bilingual.

La Hacienda

As I mentioned before, the day after our wedding, our close family went to an Hacienda where we saw a fantastic horse show and partook in a Pachamanca.  A Pachamanca is a ceremonious event to cook a typical Peruvian dish in hot stones in the ground.  While that was cooking, we were entertained by a horse show featuring Peruvian Caballos de Paso.  I put together a brief photo story of the process of preparing the Pachamanca and the horse show.  You can see how the cooks layered the pit with the food (beef, pork, tamales, corn, papas, etc..) and bricks and banana leaves.  Tomorrow’s post is the ceremonious dance over the covered pit!
