- Firday April 8
Today we had breakfast at the Permaculture Center and then headed out...now let me tell you a bit about the center...basically it is a place where they try to grow their own food sustainably and live in harmony and everything...it was really cool and interesting, but i am not going to lie, every now and then i got a bit of cult vibe...basically it was really interesting, but we were kind of glad to head out in the morning....anyway that day we were making our way to Todos Santos...at about lunch time we stopped in Cabo San Lucas to visit the Cabo Dolphin center...there we pretended to be tourists and asked questions like where they got their dolphins from, how they are treated, what they are fed and so on...then we talked about it in class and it was really depressing...there were 12 dolphins (most likely taken from places like Taijii, Japan) there kept in a tiny pool with chlorine putting on shows for people all day...after we left that and recovered from our breif depression, we headed to Todos...there we stayed on the beach in front of one of our professors house...that night was so relaxing and we saw two humpback whales breaching in front of the house.....

- Saturday April 9
This was our last day camping...We woke up this morning, packed and headed home...on our way we stopped at an Earth Ship...this is a house built entirely out of recycled materaials and sustable products...it is also off the grid so they use solar panels and grey water and the likes...it was really pretty actually and it was so cool to see how they built it, how it runs, and the process they went through to get all of the permits and everything...after that we shopped in Todos for a little and got back on the road....

We are back now and my DR group is going turtle monitoring tonight...we also have tons of stuff coming up in the next few weeks so i will try to keep you postes..also look for more entries in the next few days cause even if i have nothing to write i will try to put up some more pictures....hope all is well...Cheers! <3
