To celebrate Halloween, I spend almost 24 hours making bread with my friend Lidia and her family. We made dough by the soup turrin (4, plus a trough full), left it to rise once over night, and then formed rolls and cooked them in a wood burning oven. I know I´ve posted similar bread making pictures, but I always get so excited about the process.

Here are Lidia´s kids with a small part of our abundance of bread.

Jhommer, Lidia´s youngest, also discovered the joys of ziploc for the first time.
Here you can see the inside of the oven a bit, with the "wawas", doll and llama shaped bread that we make here for All Saints Day and Day of the Dead. And below are some finished products.

  1. Hello Kait,
    my name is Mathilde and I have been a Peace Corps Volunteer in Northwest China (Lanzhou) for almost a year and a half. I want to transfer to work in youth development in Peru and am trying to contact PCV in that field in Peru to answer a few questions but PC China admin cannot give me the Peru admin contact. Would you mind getting in touch via email so that I can bother you with my questions or get in touch with any fellow Youth Development Peru PCV? I would really appreciated. Thank you so much. Mathilde, PCV China 15 (mverillaud at )
