Hello there blogees and welcome once again to the IUHPFL 2015 Merida Blog! We appreciate your patience with the posting of the blog last week and this week. We have had an amazing week and have tons to share with you so let's get to it!
Monday the students had an exam in their linguistics class...a great way to start the week, I'd say!
Now and then we get interesting little visitors at the school...
Pre-class doodling..Linguistics and mainstream jargon together at last
Afternoon activity...dance...in preparation for our farewell show, approaching shortly!
Now that's what we mean by singing...
And, theater! ( Just takin' a little break...)
Wednesday we celebrated Vanessa's b-day! Feliz Cumple Vanessa!!
Friday we headed off on our 3 day excursion to Tulum, first stopping at Punta Laguna for a hike.
Along the way we were able to spot some of the monkeys inhabiting the jungle!
Our hike ended with a stop at the lagoon where we were all very ready to cool off
We headed to the beach in Tulum later Friday evening...
Friday night we headed back to our hotel where we spent a few hours just hanging out...some of us a bit more chill than others, as card games can get pretty intense. Here's a glimpse of a game of speed...
Saturday we went to Akumal beach in Tulum to check out more ruins, which made for some beautiful photos and scenic walk, despite the heat!
Friday night we all headed out to explore the town and eat dinner..
Saturday morning breakfast before heading to see more ruins, shoreside!
Heading back to the bus...oh, wait..yeah, we have to stop at SB!
heading on to the beach... again! It really never gets old!
Some of us went snorkeling to see the tortoises, coral and other various aspects of the sea
Adios playa!!!! Our last playa visit!! :( I think this was everyone's fav though...
Adios nuestro petit hotel!
Before heading back to Mérida, we stopped in Valladolid to do a little shopping, eat lunch...and...
and see our last cenote! :(
As always, thank you all for joining us this week, and we will be back again next Sunday to share more of our experiences as our journey in Merida comes to a close!
Adiós for now! :)
