|Parque Ecologico with Evelin|
Wow, it is hard to believe I have only been here for two weeks--it feels like at least four!
The classes here are not exactly what I had imagined them to be. There is not a strict structure, rather they are more in a free-form manner. I have Grammar Class in the morning and Conversation Class in the afternoon. Because I am taking communication classes, I do not necessarily have a Grammar review, so the name is misleading. The number of students in class as well as my teachers change every week, so it is never a routine for me.
I have been able to go on several excursions so far. The number one site I usually go to is called El Zocalo, which is in the center of the city. There, one can find small shops, restaurants, bars, etc--it is essentially a plaza for people to spend time together. In addition, I have visited Parque Ecologico, Las Barrancas, Teotihuacan, Brady Museum, La Tortuga Cucufata, Plaza Cuernavaca, and saw the movie Pacific Rim in 4D!
Tomorrow I plan to meet up with some friends to watch the USA vs. Panama CONCACAF soccer game...go USA! Saludos!
