Calle Alegre

Hola Festval - big crowd on Gay Street The Hola Festival moved from Market Square to a new location this year. Yesterday, the recently renovated part of Gay Street was lined with booths selling food and other goods from almost every Latin American country. My wife and I enjoyed a chicken tamale for lunch and a delicious rogelito for dessert. If I can find a recipe that isn’t in Spanish, I will suggest that my wife make a batch of the dulce de leche delights at the annual Christmas baking party we attend.
