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 Pachamanca

Today’s post of the mini-series our aniversario is fun and cultural.  Yesterday, I explained about our adventure at the Hacienda the day after our wedding.  At the Hacienda, we were lucky enough to partake in a Pachamanca which is a ceremonious event to cook a typical Peruvian dish or dishes in a hot-stone pit.  The origins of a Pachamanca go back to the Incas.  Once the pit is covered, Padrinos of the Pachamanca are chosen to ceremoniously dance around the pit and kind of “give it a blessing” as it starts to cook.  We chose guests from each side of our families.  You will have to ignore all the noise from the videographer….crazy bride flapping her mouth!
