... the gilded altars and 3D reliefs. This church has been the domain of the Dominican monks who have made it their interest to help the local indigenous people who have not fared particularly well with colonisation. It was interesting just to wander the cobbled streets admiring the architecture with no real need to be at any specific place. We wandered further south from Mercardo Benito Juarez to visit the Mercardo de Artesanias. This is a market ...

... I’ve visited on the entire trip… Apparently in Veracruz, the Anthropology museum is one of the best things to see in the entire state – to me that tells you how **** the Veracruz province is. There are a few decent ones out there, but I can probably count them on one hand – the rest of the time I’m just keeping my eye out for stupid stuff.

He couldn't speak Spanish, but a local priest saw something in him & pushed him to study. He was 11 when he started to learn and by his 20's he was at university. He then went on to become Mexico's first & only Indigenous president to this date. Very interesting. Once back at the hostel I just chilled out with all the other ...

Day 53 - Another Day at school

... he was sorting out some business with a lady in the car (they joked it was selling drugs), then we headed to school after picking up another student. On the way I went through all the short sentences we had written out to help us remember out verbs which Rogelio seemed pretty impressed we had taken the time to do so. Today's lesson was using sentences like "tomorrow I think I will..." And listening for questions. Then at the ...
