On December 12th, my husband and I parked by the bus depot in La Peñita while waiting for friends to arrive. Laughing out loud, I just had to take a picture of what we saw in the rear window of a taxi parked in front of us. We guessed they must have been going to a party by the amount of donuts on the tray! We laughed again when the driver opened the hatch in the taxi and more “party” stuff was visible… bottles of pop and a large pot of what was possibly hot soup wrapped in a towel. Gingerly lifting the wrapped pot out of the hatchback, the driver quickly left it on the step of the bus station, and then the taxi full of people left… to go enjoy the donuts?
