While our friends and family in the states celebrate Halloween today, Santiago and Adriana will be celebrating Día de la Canción Criolla (Day of the Creole Song) at school.
They and their classmates are dressed in traditional clothing as they enjoy a style of music that dates back to colonial times.
Peru celebrates its traditional music and dance in restaurants and parks; on sidewalks and on the beach; in the mountains and the jungle.
Here are few pictures of the kids before they headed off to school.
Tonight, we’ll break out the Halloween costumes!
Be safe, everyone!
