Royal Wedding and Peru

Wedding, Peru, wedding, Peru, wedding, Peru this what consumes my days now, planning a wedding and preparing to go on-line with the Peruvian hand knits for Our Hands For Hope, LLC.
So, I've found a great way a to "marry" the two...so to speak.

With wedding plans in action for my daughter and the overwhelming publicity for the 
William and Kate Royal wedding,
I was struck by the two smartly costumed William and Kate Peruvian cuy's.

 The Cuy, which is an important animal to the Peruvian culture is highly honored at a festival in Huacho, Peru.

These cute little guinea pigs are costumed and paraded
to compete for best dressed.

 Awards are given for Best Dressed, Couture, and


Best Dressed, Epicurean!
They say they taste like chicken. Yum.

This post is adorable, except for the last bit...I won't tell my daughter who has them for pets.

Just stopped by to say hello and see what you were up to.
