Flag of Mexico  , Central Mexico and Gulf Coast,
Monday, April 13, 2009

Today was a great day with beautiful(but hot) weather starting off with another Spanish lesson in the morning. It was a good experience and we all learnt a lot. Everybody was onto it today as it was cooler in the morning than last lesson in the hot sun. we learnt heaps of good phrases that will help us get on well in the Mexican culture. Such as: how to order food and good useful bargaining tip for the markets. Which was very helpful for our afternoon activities  which was shopping! The girls including me were really excited.
After are lesson we walked into the city centre with all its pretty buildings to start our shopping spree. we got into groups to groups of about 5 and went to explore the markets.
After a hour of that we all met up for lunch in a restaurant with both Mexican and American food, this was great for the people who wanted a little break from all the hot spices of Mexican food.
After we downed are yummy food it was off for another hour of shopping. by this time it was extremely hot and everybody wanted shade. When that was done we all met up and showed each other our new items and got on the bus and came back to the hotel.
After we had a few hours to relax at the hotel and go for swim we all got dressed up to go to a cultural Mexican dance show. The dance included 7 different cultural dances and a provided meal. The costumes were bright and fun and we all got a chance to join in. Was a great experience we wont forget. Tomorrow we have a long 12 hour bus ride so we get up bright and early for a early start

Mexico shopping
Well the shopping sounds great and I look forward to seeing all your bargains Shanny. I can imagine a little break from the mexican food went down well for a change.
All the parents are really enjoying the blogs and we look forward to hearing further adventures.

Happy Birthday Hannah
It's the morning of your birthday here in NZ and it feels strange not to have you on the end of our bed opening your presents this morning. Big big hugs and kisses from Mum, Dad and Grace for your birthday.
Have a wonderful birthday.
I have sent you a more detailed email so hopefully you can access it.
Can't believe the tempetures you are experiencing so the falls and swim will be very welcomed today - hope the bus is air-conditioned?
