Hola (from mexico again)
Hola all!Well its been a fun, yet hectic couple of days.Lets begin with Friday. Some of us started off the day with a nice invigorating hike and cave exploration. The other’s had the privilege of pouring a cement pad for Martine (the lucky recipient of last year’s house) so that he could add on to his house for his brother to come live with them after being injured in a car accident. Fun was had for both groups, but the fun really started when we all met up at a “oasis” as we liked to call it. It was the most beautiful setting for palm tree’s and pool’s. We enjoyed the sunshine, and some of the girls enjoyed a toss in the pool (compliments of the young ‘Gentlemen’ of the group) After a delicous meal of fish tacos we met as a group for one of our last times in Mexico. It was in this last meeting that students had the opportunity to encourage our teammates and share what makes them special to each of us. After that we had a super happy fun Fiesta (Sundae’s, Pinatas, Dancing and Fire Crackers incuded)Saturday some of us got an early start to the day. The girls decided that the extra fire crackers should go to waste, so we..I mean they.. lit them outside the boy’s room to ensure the trip went out with a ‘Bang’. The morning was filled with cleaning packing and tearful goodbye’s as we left our friends, and Mexico behind. But not before we headed to La Bufedora, a popular market where you can buy “everything you never needed” (according to Andrew) We spent some time bargaining and bartering our way through the market, and some of us discovered that they were quite skilled at the art. After shopping we headed to the boarder where things went quickly and painlessly. We continued to L.A stopping for dinner at Jack in the Box, which was delicious. We pray for safe travels home tomorrow, and that we would all be able to zip up our suitcases. See you all soon!Buenos Noches.-Meghan & Lisa.
