See or hear the 2010 Mayoff Day Song
Our first guest was a "lima bean llama from Lima." A close look reveals that this llama (pronounced yama) is wearing a key around its neck. That is a llama-key!
The Andes mountain peak that made the llama feel at home. Also shown are a variety of fruits from south of the border, including a pineapple tree, coconuts, limes, manzano bananas, red bananas and cacao nibs. Of course you can also see a tray of traditional Mayoff Day cookies. Hidden behind the mountain is a tray of maracuja (passion fruit) tarts. In the background, on the counter are a pair of Argentine yerba mate gourds and bombillas sitting in front of a copy of "Is Your Mama a Llama". The table is covered in banana leaves.
Close-up of the Andes. You'll notice that a variety of farm animals have found their way to the mountain, because "how are you going to keep them down on the farm after they've seen Peru?"
Another table, Salvadoran bean dip hidden behind chips and shrimp bowl refilled.

Everyone was sent home with a souvenir, an "Upstander" reminder-band/bracelet.
From "Facing History and Ourselves"
Upstanders: (n) Those who do not simply stand by in the face of injustice, but understand that each one of us can make a difference.
