We did some sight seeing in the morning and we went to Parque Museo La Venta (a historical and animal park in pretty much the centre of town). It was pretty funny to see that the the local lake here has crocodiles (we saw one just entering the water a few meters from us). Needless to say there were no fences and footpaths go all around the lake.
The park was pretty nice with a nice selection of animals and a big range of historical artifacts. These artifacts are some of the oldest historical artifacts in the world. One of the “faces” (you can see it in the photos) is the emblem for Tabasco (this area of Mexico). It was not to bad to walk today as the temperature was “only” in high thirties instead of high forties
We got back to my brother in-laws house just after midday as we had to watch the all important Australia - Germany match. Even though I am proud to be an Aussie we just didn’t show up prepared tactically. I have to admit that the red card was not deserved. I was shattered but hopefully we can bounce back (it will be hard after such humiliation). May I also add that we need Guus back as the coach... :-(
Anyway, to the important stuff... The afternoon Daniel’s mum organised a party for his and Abigails birthdays (Daniels just passed and Abigails is about to happen). We missed the first half an hour of the party as we watched the game but then joined the others. Now this was a Mexican fiesta with Mariaccihi and all. I took a few videos and we have put one of their songs on YouTube and here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhKgmG2ya-w Daniels dad even joined the singers - it was quite a spectacle.
Everybody from what I could see had a good time. We even dressed up in traditional Mexican clothes (yes including Mattias) - see the photos. The party started at 2pm and finished around 7:30pm.
We went to sleep about 10:30 due to all the good byes and chatting to friends. Tomorrow morning will be a long day as we have to be at the airport by about 6:30am.
Los Angeles here we come again....
