Week 2 In Review

So this week wasn't as exciting as last week (I have homework and essays? What?!), but Mexico is still the best.
On Monday night, we went to El Centro for FHE to watch a cultural dance performance. My favorite part was when they did this: 
Then on Friday we visited a hacienda called Yaxcopoil. It was pretty interesting and we mainly just wandered around. Afterwards we went to Uman and ate these banana snow cone things. Sounds weird and I was a little hesitant, but they were delicious. 
Yaxcopil

Catedral in Uman...that was closed.

On Saturday, we had an excursion to Celestun, a wildlife reserve. We saw saw some birds and flamingos, and then went swimming in an "ojo de agua." Like cenotes, underground water fills these pools with clean, see-through water. You could see right through the water to the very bottom and watch the fish swimming.
Afterwards we ate lunch and hung out on the beach for awhile.
