Went to the anthropology museums today and absolutely loved it. The history of all the different cultures is truly amazing to see. I was also able to read many of the description in Spanish. We hardly got through any of it as it was huge! I can't wait to show you the wall pieces I got! They are currently in bubble wrap so once I return to the states a photo will be posted!

Yesterday was Lucho I didn't overly enjoy it (I was getting sick) but here are some pictures to show off...

Today I went to the theater and saw this play! It was amazing! It was in black light and in Spanish and I actually understood it!!!! I also got to see the historic Zocalo that I thought I would only ever see in textbooks and photos because it was not planned to be visited on this trip but I saw it and am so thankful!

La Gruta hot springs hit the spot today. It was so relaxing and rejuvenating. I loved it so much. I wish we had one closer to us at home I would love there.
We got some Telavera pottery today and man was this stuff gorgeous! I can't wait to share all my finds with everyone!

Today was my first full day of school and it was exhausting. We went to the American Legion for an ice cream social and met with some people from the school. I found out I'll get to help coach basketball while one here! I am so excited both Varsity girls and Elementary basketball.
Getting up that early is not fun 🤣but on the plus side....ice cream social tonight!

Today we visited the Mercado de sabado. So much art and crafts. I love it! For those of you from home it's like a huge apple fest!
Ordering Starbucks is hard enough in English let alone Spanish. 😆

Had my first authentic Mexican dinner and it was surprisingly delicious!!! I had a chicken quesadilla and it was scrumptious. Also our waiter carried a ton of plates.
