Today we had a Fiesta de Traje, which is where everyone brings something different to share. We had pizza, spaghetti, breadsticks and hojaldra. It was also an early celebration of the Fourth of July. We decorated the terrace in red, white and blue and my host mom helped with the table centerpieces. It was a wonderful time for everyone to get to bring their host families together. After dinner, Madison, Maddie, Cameron, Josh, Mark, Kendra and Lexi Moore shared what the Fourth of July means to them. So wonderful to have so many volunteers!!!!

Uxmal is an ancient Maya city of the classical period in present-day Mexico. It is considered one of the most important archaeological sites of Maya culture, along with Chichén Itzá, which we visited last week. Yay for more pyramids! The nice part about Uxmal, was the students were able to actually explore the pyramids and they had a few hours to do this. Uxmal had a lot more trees and we were happy in the shade! It was a beautiful day!

Celestún was gorgeous! It was an optional excursion, but we were so glad everyone decided to go! We all took a ride on a "lancha" so we could see the flamingos and other great things! It was a relaxing day!
We are missing Emily, who was watching a conch be opened ;)
