Our first week in Mérida was extremely busy. We (the instructors) are very proud of all of our students for the many things that they have accomplished this first week. On Wednesday, our students met for the first time their canto/música instructors.
On Thursday, we had a guest speaker that came to talk about the History of Mexico and of Mérida. The students learned, among other things, the role that the Yucatán Península, and in particular Mérida, played during the Mexican War of Independence (1810-1821) and the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920).
