Here in Nepal it is a custom to celibrate when the son in the family reach the age of a teenager. It is called bartabanda.
Yesterday we were invited to such a party. It was Nicholas and Ani´s lawer´s son who became a teenager.
The party starts with "snacks" as they call it. Chicken, fish, potatoes, mushrooms and vegetables, all fried. They also had a barbeque with chicken and lamb. A whole lamb was hanging above and they cut bits of it to barbeque.
It was the first time I went to this kind of party and it was a nice experience.
