Thanksgiving in Bogotá

Thanksgiving Dinner

On Thursday I hosted Thanksgiving at my apartment in Bogotá. It was the first time I’ve ever been in charge of Thanksgiving dinner, and I was a bit concerned about how it would turn out, but fortunately I had lots of help and everyone seemed to enjoy the food. Since it was an international Thanksgiving, with people from the US, Colombia, France, Mexico, and Germany, it was the first Thanksgiving for many. I even told a brief summary of the story of the first Thanksgiving. We had almost all of the traditional food (minus pumpkin pie, and turkey…we had chicken instead because turkey is insanely expensive here) and added some of our own traditions, such as listening to salsa music and doing the limbo. Despite having 23 people, we still had a ton leftover, but leftovers are always good. I really like Thanksgiving, it’s one of my favorite holidays, so I’m really glad I was able to share it with so many people here from around the world. Here are some more pictures from our Thanksgiving:
