Mexico | Saturday, January 12, 2019

We all arrived safely in Mexico City today and we are having a great time. We had a chance to meet some of the students from Duchesne Academy and formal introductions will happen tomorrow – Sunday. Once we arrived at our hotel – Hotel Canada, we went out to eat at a local Taco place and the students had a good time enjoying local food and dealing with pesos. We did a little walking tour of the immediate area and returned to the hotel. It was already 11:00 pm.

Tomorrow, we will have formal introductions of all students and chaperons after breakfast at 8:30 am. We will go to the Cathedral for Mass at 10:30 and afterwards we will tour the Aztec temple ruins. We will eat at some point. At 2:00 is our time to enter the Frida Kahlo museum and after that we will go the Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe. Afterwards we will return to the hotel for dinner and time to explore the local area. It will be full day for sure.

The weather is mild but it was raining when we arrive, which is a bit unusual for this time of year.
