Dear Family and Friends,
Greetings from Mexico City! The kids enjoyed the pool and the dads are enjoying a cigar in the terrace of the hotel -- needless to say everyone was overjoyed at the possibility of having a shower!
We left Ahuazotepec at 7:00 am, stopped for a couple hours at the pyramids of Teotihuacan, had lunch there (tuna and PBJ sandwiches) and from there drove to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe where we had Mass and an hour to visit. Afterwards we went to a mall in Reforma street to have dinner and from there to the hotel.
Everyone seems so happy and grateful for the experience! Many commented that they realized that happiness and joy are not dependent upon material things; another "common realization" is that adversity is actually positive since it allows us to grow. The friendship and brotherhood among the students and dads is evident, it's been a joy and a blessing to accompany this group.
Wifi is really slow in the hotel and the pictures in my phone haven't made it to my computer so I cannot include them here, but be sure that I'll send some to you next week.
