Pozi and the New Year’s Tree

On Sunday night, we entertained a full house, as our married’s home group and our neighbor all came over for pozi, a traditional Buryat food that we introduced them to. We had a great evening together. It seems like some doors are opening.


Today, Maya’s friend – Alya – invited Maya and David to see the “New Year’s Tree” ceremony where her daughter would be performing. Maya had another engagement, but we both agreed that it would be better to accept the invitation somehow. I came home, got David and made my way to the ceremony. The kids all dressed up, performed, and played games. David was a little frightened by all the commotion and I only understood a few words of the Altaian ceremony. It was very interesting, all the same. The pictures came out a little rough because I only had the phone camera to work with. The second photo is Alya's daughter.
