Day 251 – Rain and Tamales

Peru’s Independence Day is on the 28th of July but because this fell on a Sunday, the party was held on the 27th. I spent the 28th of July on my own as hubby had gone to Cambridge to visit some friends and I spent the day eating tamales (shredded chicken or pork covered in a corn-based dough and all wrapped in banana leaves) and talking to my family on Skype. It was raining most of the day so I only dared going as far as to my garden to take some pictures. Below is my picture for the day and also a picture of a Tamal! 🙂
