Week3---WEEKEND---week4

A travel blog entry by btfreder

This weekend we had the Session A people show up. They're fellows who decided to only take two weeks out of their summer for the internship, so they'll be leaving with all of us next weekend. About eight new students arrived, and they're all pretty cool! It was nice to spend one of our best weekends of the trip with them and see some new parts of the island.

On Saturday we all got in our big coach bus and traveled down to the south for the beach. The beach was called ...

... cool today because we had two people show up! Sergio from my other lesson and Marc, the surgeon who previously let me know he couldn't always make it to class, came today and Ameenah and I got to talk to them in a 2 by 2 class.

I looked forward to ...

Sleeping in and Santa Cruz

... than any other. After we ate, we ran over to the Museo de la naturaleza y el hombre (museum of nature and mankind), which was an interesting trip in itself. Among other things, we learned about the geological history of the Canary Islands, the settlement of aborigines in each one, the culture and health of the people who lived there, and mummification! We even got to see a real mummified fetus, which both creeped me out and fascinated me.
