... preserved some of these remains are! It is a little eerie to view preserved fingernails, hair, and the clothes melded into the bony remnants of the mummy. The baby mummies are so sad to look upon. In fact, the smallest mummy in the world, a 6 month old fetus, is at the museum. The fetus was buried next to his aged mother, believed to be 40 years old, who died before the birth. Whew... little draining to see all this!
Unfortunately, we ran out of time and ...
... it's just a silly think they do here. Once I got home I ate a little, took a shower, and almost went straight to bed. However, my friend Maria Elena showed up so we chatted for a bit and then I politely kicked her out. I was in bed by 10. :)
Saturday I worked all day until about 6:30 when Ricardo, Maria Elena, Dave (Maria Elena's house mate and another student from our program), and I went to a Folkloric ...
... the times in Cancun it almost feels normal, yet I was pretty intimidated by these policemen, and the way they looked at us. Definitely didn't trust getting in a car with them... They ended up taking Monica's friend in the back of their truck to spend the night in jail which was just mental, and then drove us to the Oxxo to meet Edgar. Crazy.
We then visited the Rincon de Parangueo, which involved walking through a long, dark tunnel ...
... 45, which gives me time to get ready and also do some school work before leaving the house around 7:50 to get to class at 8:00. I have class from 8:00-9:50 and then 10:00 to 11:50 Monday thru Friday, and then on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons I have class from 4:15-6:15. I did go to salsa class on Tuesday afternoon (yea!) which only ended up being me and one of the guys from last week (not the one I danced ...
... who isn’t a part of my host family or my dance group. I have to say, it was a good experience. Anyway, after that, I stopped and bought a couple of shawls for gifts and some toys that fly in the air. They are like little airplanes that you shoot up in the air and cascade down to the ground. Then, I took a taxi home.
When I got home, there were a ton of people in the living room. Bugui, Aura, Allie, Flora, Adriana (Magda’s sister), and her son ...

We would highly recommend this very clean, quiet and economical little hotel
located just a few minute's walk from the centro. The rooms were comfortable and so were the beds. Breakfast was perfect - hot freshly-brewed Oaxacan coffee, tea, juice, sweet breads, cereal, yogurt, granola and fruit. Sophian, the owner, was very helpful and kind. Meson Cuevano was a gem of a find, in a beautiful city!
