So remember when you were a kid birthday parties were kind of the best thing ever? Turns out kids parties are the GREATEST in Panama. The parents tend to go all out to celebrate and they make incredible food to feed everybody (food is not limited to kids parties but it just feels more indulgent when you’re celebrating a niño).
One of my many host cousins turned one and had a huge jungle themed celebration full of music from the Spanish version of the lion king and jungle decor. I got to hangout with my family and some of my students for an evening and just enjoy myself.
