After a long day of traveling (about 11 hours!), we made it safely to Merida, Mexico! We were warmly welcomed at the airport by Pati and Jose who drove us back to the Mission and gave us a brief tour. We had dinner from the cocina economica (economic kitchen) which was a variety of homemade tacos. We ended the night reflecting on the Mayan culture and history, and playing charades to show how language is deeper than words and to practice what it’s like to have a language barrier. Our group is so excited for the upcoming week and to begin learning more about the culture and programs the Mission has to offer.
until next time,
