Cinco De Mayo in Nairobi :-)

Simon and Tania hosted a Cinco de Mayo party over the weekend. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican heritage and also commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. There was plenty of Mexican food, drink and music….

Later on Tania asked me to help host a pepper eating competition 🙂

We had three contestants. Stevo (lead singer of The Itch Band), Elena and one other guy…..

The competition was tight and the guests attentive. Eventually Stevo won and I had the pleasure of giving him his trophy (a bottle of Amarula)

Later we had the tradition of beating the pinata, which Denise won 🙂

All in all we had a lovely Saturday at Simon’s house 🙂
