mx-sancarlosI'm home now! Kind of a bitter-sweet feeling. I had such a good time in Mexico.

On the last day (Thursday), we went to the beach in San Carlos. It was absolutely beautiful -- there's no way the pictures I took do it justice. The beach was packed with people because it's Holy Week, which I guess is a pretty big holiday for them. Unfortunaley the water was spotted with jelly fish. I was too nervous to spend too much time in there, so I just went in for a little bit. I spent the rest of the time walking along the beach, tidepooling and laying out.

Afterwards we went to a place called froggy's and all had dinner as one big group. A mariochi band came in and played us some music while we ate. We didn't want to go back to Hermosillo just yet, so we decided to walk around and found that that was the thing to do. Herds of people lined the streets and as we walked up a down the streets we would stop and dance and laugh and just have the best time. It reminded me of spring break in St George cause there was nothing particularly special about the street, people just hung out and partied all night.

mx_hermosillo_lds_mormon_templeThe trip to Hermsillo Mexico was was organized by Southern Utah University.  Fourty of us piled into vans and drove 18 hours straight from Cedar City Utah to Hermosillo, Mexico! Technically I didn´t drive -- I just slept most of the time, and I think that my ability to sleep during horifically long trips is one of the greatest blessings I have been given.

Hermosillo is a pretty big city. I haven´t had the chance to look around, but I look forward to it. Today we drove to Guaymus where the other half of our group is staying (there are about 25 of us in Hermosillo and 15 in Guaymas). We went to church there...which was interesting cause half of the locals came in jeans and they let their kids run rampid...hard to get a reverent feel.

Afterward we got some lunch and then played at the beach all day! It was so beautiful. Í´m really excited for this experience. The people that I came with are really cool and lots of fun.

Tomorrow I have my first day at the hospital! Right now we´re about to head to a park and get some hot dogs, so we are still in "arrival mode."
