On the eve of a person's birthday here, his or her friends gather just before midnight to sneak up to the cumpleanero's window. Outside, when it is officially midnight, there is a whole list of songs that can be sung to the sleepy cumpleanero. My friend Emilee just came to Bolivia two weeks ago to teach at the school, and today is her birthday. I went along with some friends from church and school and sang to her last night. SO MUCH FUN.
