A day at the museum with the pleves!

I went to the Museum with the eighth graders of the school, the principle and another teacher. It was very fun and I have to admit, a lot more fun than I thouhgt it was going to be. Usually I don't like going to Museums with a group of people because we always spend way to long looking at things, but this time was perfect. I even thought we spent too little time at one museum. We went to two museums, one was called, museo ejercito y fuerza de Mexico, so it was the prehistoric to now a day history, of mexico. The second was called Museo de Planeotologia, and we got to see bones and fossils that were found here in the State of Jalisco, Mexico.

The statue is of an Aztec Warrior, they wore animal skins when they fought. There are pictures of some boys that I taught and also of two girls in the same class and I. The last picture, is of one of the students who thought it was a good idea to show the depth from of the sand underneath the glass. And of course two boys measuring their arm to a prehistoric femor bone!

the amazing talents of art!

I went to a museum with my friend Daniela. First we saw a photographer who decided to do a project that took two years to do because the camera and the way she develops her film is crazy hard. She was there to introduce her work, and we got to ask her some questions. She was very shy and very very talented. I even got a picture with her, Daniela and I. The only painting is of Carlos Vargas Pons and he was just as amazing, but unfortunately he was not there. Oh well it was fun anyway!

A classical concert!

I went with some friends to two classical concerts. The first one was a pianist, and he was absolutely amazing, and the second was a violinist! The concerts were great and the theater is amazing. It's one of the first in Guadalajara, and Guadalajara is over 400 years old. It's beautiful and we sat on a balcony both times so I get to have a nice view! Yipee for Theaters and concerts!

So in the pictures are of the theater's many floors, the orchestra and Kim and I.

A wedding in mexico!

What a weekend ! I went to a wonderful wedding and it made me remember what a wedding is like. It was so beautiful! I really enjoyed it, and it was so fun to dance with old men and friends! I went with my friends that are sisters, and their family. I even participated in the bouquet toss, which I got a flower or two without force. It was great and we ended up coming home at three in the morning. It's cool that in Mexico many people have their wedding and reception at night, so they last a lot longer.

The bishop and his wife are here in one picture, and yes they are foreigners too from southern California, and the second is the Bride, Daniela, Kim and I. The photo of Kim, Daniela and I are of us just after the bouquet toss, oh how fun.
