Doreen's birthday

On 6th October we celebrated Doreen's birthday in Santa María, then a week later, in Itzapa. Both days were excellent and in true style, were celebrated to the full!

In Santa María, all the mums woke early to start preparing 100s of tortillas and pepían and the children practised their dances.

In Itzapa, Elena's women's group got together and put on traditional dances. A great time for the women, the kids and the volunteers, and most of all, Doreen! Happy Birthday, and for those who don't's 6th October!
ps, I'll get some photos of Itzapa soon!
