Day of the Kings

Today is the Day of the Kings, where all the little Paraguayans wake up early and rush out to see if the camels that carry the Three Kings stopped by their house in the night and left gifts. They left their shoes outside last night (thankfully, it didn't rain!), with little gifts of straw and water for the camels. In return, the camels put a little something out for each child. Such excitement! (To those of you who sent money to the "Kings and camels" who left these gifts, God bless you for bringing a smile to these little folks today. They hardly slept last night, running back and forth to their windows every time they heard a squeak.)
