On saturday we had the opportunity to meet the families of those we work with at the office as we all got together for a barbeque at one of the parks in La Paz. The sun was shining (as it does regularly now at this time of year) and both the food and the company was good. In true Bolivian fashion, the strict 10 am start drifted into 12.30/1 oclock. The strict program that had all been planned out so carefully, just fizzled. However, on this occasion, it didn't really matter as it just created the time and space to get to know each other a bit better, and have some fun.
It was really nice to see eveybody interacting and the children all playing together, and to feel a part of it all. The only thing thing that seemed rather strange to us was that they served up hotdogs to everybody, then about an hour later, the rest of the food (Potatoes, rice and salad) why they couldn't have done it all together we were not quite sure, but thats cultural differences for you.
