Hello sweet friends!
I just got over my "Gringa Tea," we were fifteen with me and I wanted to host it this year, sort of a belated Christmas Tea party. The first ladies who lived here took me under their wings back in 1975 and thus the name, 'Gringa Tea' as they already had a tradition to get together with all the new American ladies and make them feel welcomed and show us the ropes.
There are no great pics as I was busy and didn't want to bother my guests.
Most ladies live here, some are retiring here and some are married to Ecuadorians and live longer than me, even! Some are ladies who lived in the USA but are native ladies from here, relatives and friends as well.
Ok, just a few photos of the event which was just great, I enjoyed having them so much and it seems they all had an awesome time. The Tea Party started at 4pm and they left at 8pm!
|Some ladies in this table are originally from here, but lived many years in the USA and are back, as well.|

So here you have it, a little glimpse of my 'Gringa Tea' and we always have such an awesome time together!
Thanks for visiting me, wish I could have you here for tea too, as you been 'Gringas' you all qualify, perfectly!
Thanks for the parties gracious hostesses and for having US today.
