Festival das Comunidades

2 Aug

We had a fun festival (the first!) in Sal the other weekend. Rachelle came in town to help and we had 2 stalls, one filled with info about American history, diversity, statistics, etc. and the other with American food! Yes, yours truly was deep frying (a restauranteer actually lent us a deep fryer) onion rings in the sweaty heat, and Capeverdeans seemed to love them. I’ve gotten requests for home visits to cook some up.

Rachelle also taught a cute group of Capeverdean Americans to sing the national anthem, which they did splendidly onstage.  (We all refused to perform the cheerleading routine that was suggested as our national performance…).
