This would be the third Christmas I have spent abroad. I was once lucky enough to have some family in a nearby town (in England - thanks Jim and fam) for the first international X-mas, and the second time I was in Costa Rica (and again very luckily) surrounded by a beautiful Costa Rican/Colombian family that welcomed me with open arms.
So this year I wasn't too concerned when two weeks before Navidad, I didn't really know where I was headed for the special day. And this non-worry proved valid: I met one of the sweetest, kind, authentic families I have ever met. And to top off the times, I experienced my second Uruguayan asado. This time with sheep meat.
