The same old story about a small town girl surviving in the big city...

Feliz Ano Nuevo From Peru!
Cusco, Peru filled up with yellow yesterday and Thursday. The colour is supposed to bring good luck and it is everywhere on New Year's Eve. People are selling yellow flowers, leis, hats, and more. There was a massive increase in vendors for all the yellow products in the markets, public squares, and lining the major streets. All the cashiers at the grocery store were where wearing various yellow foam hats, but some of them didn't seem to have their heart in it. It reminded me a bit of Stampede in Calgary where the whole city gets "into it" but sometimes it is forced. I am excited for 2016 so it isn't forced from me - Happy New Years! (or Feliz Ano Nuevo, which is missing some accents over the letters but I am too lazy to find the keyboard shortcuts for them.)
