Gumbo Fiesta

Yesterday my dad and I decided we should have a gumbo party. We gathered all the ingredients and invited the crew. It was so much fun! People came from close by cities to gather for the occasion. Santiago brought out Dwights guitar and started playing country music on it, took me back home! He also played some local tunes and everyone sand along. It’s funny how everyone knows each other through friends here. The gumbo chef, mi padre, did an excellent job and everyone wanted seconds of the gumbo. We included freshly caught shrimp and local sausage as well as fresh veggies from our garden on grounds. There were about 15-20 of us and we finished off about 15 20oz bottles of Brauma beer, a bottle of rum and most of the tequila…now that’s a party!!

PS. The picture of the door is because our downstairs bathroom door is broken. If you use the bathroom and shut the door it automatically locks you in. The more we drank the more fun we had with people going in there and trying to get out. It was so loud you couldn’t even hear anyone knock!
