Happy 200th, Santa Cruz!

On September 24th Santa Cruz celebrated its 200th anniversary.  We celebrated at school on the 22nd by playing traditional games, eating traditional foods, and learning about the history of this city and department.

My favorite part of the day is that my kids were required to dress in the traditional clothes that cambas or lowlanders, wore.  They looked great!

My class minus one boy.  The girls are wearing the typical Santa Cruz
dress called a tipoi.

Aram, Hernan, and Jorge are true crucenos, even if they do represent Korean, Bolivian, and Chinese backgrounds.
