We have officially started our third week in Merida! We are almost half way through the program... It's really hard to believe it!
As usual, we had sports on Wednesday. This time, some of our students decided to play basketball. The rest played soccer! In both cases, local children joined us!!! It was very fun!!!

THURSDAY: COOKING YUCATECAN FOOD
On Thursday, we had two special guests: mamá Irene and Magda. Two of our host mothers came to our school to teach us how to cook Yucatecan food. Our students were divided into five groups and then it was time to get started!!!
Our hard work paid off! We got the chance to taste the result!!!!
FRIDAY: EXCURSIONS TO UXMAL AND LOLTUN
On Friday, we visited two amazing places: Uxmal and Loltun!
At Uxmal, we got the chance to explore the area and climb a pyramid! The view from the pyramid was breathtaking!
On our way to Uxmal...
After Uxmal, we headed to the Loltún caves :)
Our tour guide told us the history buried inside the caves...
SATURDAY AT CHIMAY
On Saturday we went to the town of Chimay to continue our volunteer work at another Mayan community. We worked very hard and were very happy to be able to help!
