So let's celebrate Quito's Foundation or Fiestas de Quito with our InterNations group at Strawberry Fields bar, a nice bar at Gonzalez Suarez Area (in front of Hotel Quito) and close to the colloquial neighborhood of Guapulo. This is what you get in return for your entrance fee:
- 2 Drinks (Canelazo) + Cuba libre or Mojito or Local beer
- Empanadillas de Morocho (Typical from Quito)
- icebreaking games
- Cuarenta Card Game, typical in Fiestas de Quito, Winner gets an extra Canelazo
We decided to create a mini Cuarenta Championship card game, typical for Fiestas de Quito, its on teams of 2, we all explain the rules of the game for those that dont know it on the event. We all create the teams onsite, better if random so people can get to know each other (part of the ice breaker games, optional to play y the way). The winner team will get a Glass of Canelazo!!!
Besides this we all do some extra ice breaking sessions so everyone gets to know each other and of course we all put some classical music during Quito's Festivities (Chulla Quiteño?), so we can all dance and sing together and get to know each other in a fun way. And finally if we all choose we can go dance after 11pm somewhere else at the area!
So hope to see you all soon to celebrate the birth of Quito with its classical drinks and food with people all over the world in a fun and warm way!!! And QUE VIVA QUITO!!!
Please note: We'll be supporting Alba and María Elena and organize the first monthly event from now on while they will continue organizing one later in the month.
