There’s just something special about waking up every morning in Baja. Sunrises here are a beautiful mix of purple, orange, and pink—with palm trees gracing the horizon. Today, we had our last Spanish classes in Baja, before eating awesome quesadillas for lunch. Then, we packed our bags and went to the beach where we boogie boarded, swam, and played beach soccer. For dinner, we ate yummy tacos! After everyone had ordered, I went around the table, and I asked all of the students three questions about this first part of the trip.
Here is the data I collected:
#1: What was your favorite meal?

The first part of our trip has been a great introduction to Baja, with full days of studying Spanish, eating delicious meals, and becoming familiar with the area. Now it is time for us to depart Todos Santos and head north of La Paz, where will meet members of local fishing villages and participate in community service. We are all excited and ready for the next part of our adventure. Thank you readers!
