... like I should speak it didn't help. My few attempts at English were met with blank stares and a longer, faster, and more exasperated version of their original communication. Rusty Spanish it was.
The Wyndham Silao was modern, clean, and did the trick. It felt quite safe, as it was filled with business travelers and families. Once settled, feeling thirsty and knowing better than to drink Mexico tap water, I headed across the lot to the strip mall ...
... sure that we had spent more time on buses than in a town, and all we wanted to do was be at the beach. The 5 hours finally rolled around and we boarded the bus to Oaxca with some Mexicans who thought we had lost the plot.

But, that being said, I am enjoying the experience, the other students are awesome. Alright, I officially have just under 8 hours to sleep to get a good start to the week. Nice. I'll try to post something again next week. Happy 4th of July to all!!
